Nevertheless, later critics, who were less likely to have slanted points of view, continued to agree on the long-lasting influence the Kelmscott Press bore on the world of printing. The advent of chromolithography was a turning point, insofar as it induced a simplification of colour printing. Many carefully designed books with ornamentations in colour were thus printed. Some of these illuminated volumes turned out to be great successes, like those of Owen Jones and Henry Noel Humphrey, or the Favourite Modern Ballads by Jospeh Cundall.
These principles were rooted in the example of the printers and scribes of the middle ages. Morris insisted on using handmade paper produced in London, as well as ink imported from Germany. For Morris it was crucial that the decorative elements on a page complement the printed words.
