Shakespeare on Love
Edited by Ilya
Shakespeare’s famous sonnets were originally published in 1609.
Ilya first worked with the bard nearly 400 years later, adapting King Lear into comic strip form as part of a series dubbed Manga Shakespeare. Now he has turned his skills to the sonnets – inviting twelve well-known artists to convert their chosen one into an 8 page comic.
This new volume, designed by Thextension, presents an artful dozen of Shakespeare’s finest verses, showing them to contain love of every sort, including perhaps that most elusive of all… True Love.
A wonderful idea currently in search of an adventurous publisher!
