Surely we are not the only ones to recite Chaucer’s Prologue to The Canterbury Tales whenever the month of April strikes, right? Hmmm … maybe we are! At least everyone can appreciate the beauty that is the Kelmscott Press edition of the The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer. Printed by William Morris in 1896 and featuring lovely wood engravings by Burne-Jones (such as the one depicted showing Chaucer being all poetic and totally rockin’ some medieval robes), the Kelmscott Chaucer is surely a dandy’s delight to read!
