¶ Many lovers of Ruskin will doubtless recognize, in the cover of the present number of "The Craftsman", a copy of a much prized possession of the great art-critic. The design is derived from an illuminated missal executed in the latter half of the fourteenth century, for the Countess Yolande de Flandres. It gave the text for a lecture devoted to the treatment of plant-forms, and it was regarded by Ruskin as a drawing of great beauty. It is here reproduced because of its associations; just as the cover of the October number represented the "Daisy tile pattern", which was one of the earliest and most effective among the designs of William Morris.
