Fran Durako is owner of the Kelmscott Bookshop in Baltimore, Maryland. We talk here, among other things, about her love of William Morris, fine printing and Victorian book illustration, the transition from book collector to seller, and art as a ‘positive necessity of life if we are to live as nature meant us to.’
