Shakespeare comes beautifully packaged, measuring 10cm tall, and ready to brighten up your bookshelf. Includes a numbered, limited edition collector card. All the world’s a stage for the incomparable William Shakespeare. Hailing from Stratford-upon-Avon, the bard took London by storm in the late 1500s, where his plays shocked and delighted audiences. A particularly dramatic performance of henry viii even saw the globe theatre engulfed in flames when a theatrical cannon sparked the thatch roof. Shakespeare’s love for mischief, tragedy, gender-bending characters, and wickedly entertaining themes will live on for centuries to come.
