Tales from Shakespeare, Hardback Book

Tales from Shakespeare Hardback


In this charming collectable book, there is a selection of Charles and Wendy Lamb's classic prose retellings of Shakespeare's plays that are beautifully illustrated by acclaimed artist Joelle Jolivet.

The Lambs' Shakespeare, familiar to readers since the 1880s, gets a modern twist from Jolivet's vibrant and colourful art.

Jolivet re-imagines the princes, royalty, fools and villains from Shakespeare's world as colourful, striking characters.

From "Much Ado About Nothing" to "Macbeth", each story features pages of illustrations that are both irreverent and wholly appropriate.

Enclosed in a die-cut slipcase, the book is the perfect gift for Shakespeare fans at any age.
