Artistic and personal partners for more than fifty years, Ricketts and Shannon designed and illustrated books, established an occasional art journal, The Dial, in 1889 and founded the Vale Press in 1894. Named after their house, The Vale, in Chelsea, they published a total of about 75 books, including a complete reprint of the works of Shakespeare.
