On This Day...

Erik Weisz was born on March 24, 1878 in Budapest, Hungary.
We remember him today by his assumed name, Harry Houdini.

William Morris was born on this day in 1834. Morris was a poet, painter and designer, typographer, and founder of the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain. He was the founder of the Kelmscott Press, whose editions of classic literary works featuring his exquisite woodcuts and typefaces are among the most beautiful books ever printed.
