Pre-Order Limited Edition Shakespeare's First Folio: All The Plays: A Children's Edition
To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the First Folio, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has created a limited children’s edition of one of the most important books ever published. This remarkable collection, illustrated by Emily Sutton and edited by Anjna Chouhan, comprises all 36 plays in the First Folio, carefully abridged so that Shakespeare’s words can be read, performed and treasured by generations to come.
This beautiful book features a specially commissioned poem by Michael Rosen and lavish illustrations - including a signed portrait print - by the award-winning artist Emily Sutton.
Published in a limited edition of 400 copies, each book is individually numbered and presented in a beautifully decorated box featuring Emily’s colourful artwork inspired by 17th-century embroidery in the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust's collection. The same exquisite design of flora and fauna is reproduced in stunning gold foil on the front cover. The box lining and mailer feature a pattern inspired by blackwork embroidery of the period.
Available to pre-order. Copies will be released in April 2024.
