This new series of Shakespeare books that just arrived the other day at Watson Kennedy with intricate, laser-cut paper art is just too cool for words. They were created by Pratt Institute graduate Kevin Stanton–these books are sure to become classic gifts. His hand-cut artwork was taken and replicated with near perfection, making the series truly small works of art. Each volume presents the text of the play complete with scholarship, commentary, notes, and essays about Shakespeare’s language and significant performances. I can’t wait to start giving these as gifts.
