This beautiful collection designed by Rory Hutton celebrates the 400th anniversary of the publication of William Shakespeare's First Folio.
The design features references to the First Folio’s publication date, Shakespeare’s birth and death years, and titles of many of the plays featured in the publication.
Published seven years after Shakespeare’s death, the First Folio includes 36 of his plays, thanks to the hard work and dedication of two of his friends and fellow actors, John Heminge and Henry Condell, who gathered the plays together. If they had not committed to collecting the work for the book, modern day experts on Shakespeare’s life and work have stated that half of all of his plays (including Macbeth, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, The Tempest, and Antony and Cleopatra) would have been lost forever.
