MEDIA REVIEWS
..".a great range of examples from all over the world." -Creative Review
"Next year marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, but his plays live on. How they have managed to put butts in pews all this time is addressed, and generously illustrated, in a gorgeous new coffee table book, Presenting Shakespeare." -Playbill
"The artists' interpretations of the plays are as varied as the takes of actors and directors who have approached the material over the many decades since they premiered, providing the diverse visual archive that amazes." -Print
"Shakespeare on a skateboard or punkish with tattoos, Romeo i Julia with a heart-shaped bear trap, a Ralph Steadman Macbeth--from delicate to horrifying, these posters are arresting." -Shelf Awareness
"The organization of the book is a stroke of genius..The book is irresistible on many levels, not least for the reading, which includes a preface by Julie Taymor." -Design Arts Daily
."with over a thousand posters from 55 countries it offers an opportunity to delve into how different cultures interpret Shakespeare's classic stories of love, tragedy, and twisted identities." -Hyperallergic
"The most striking posters in the book are the brainy minimalists, like the giant gloved and clenched fist in a French production of 'Othello, ' or the deliciously morbid meat ice cream cone in an Argentine 'Hamlet.'" -New York Times
