Morris Meredith Williams was an illustrator and teacher in Edinburgh when the First World War broke out.
Throughout his time in the trenches of the Western Front he sent letters and drawings back to his wife Alice, a sculptor. After the war, some of his sketches became paintings and others inspired memorials on which he and Alice worked together, notably the frieze of the Scottish National War Memorial.
A new book, An Artist’s War, collates the art and the letters he and his wife exchanged during the war.
We have five copies of An Artist’s War to give away.
