SIGNATURE SHAKESPEARE SERIESFeaturing remarkable laser-cut paper designs throughout, this new series offers stunning presentations of Shakespeare's plays, complete with scholarship, commentary, notes, and illustrated essays about Shakespeare's language and performances of the play. It's a keepsake package worthy of the greatest, and most loved, playwright in the English language.  Each volume in the Signature Shakespeare series includes:
- Illustration: Original paper-cuts, in the form of laser tip-ins and scans, beautifully illustrate each play. Paintings and photographs add depth to front and back matter.
- Scholarship: Premier scholars introduce each play with contemporary scholarship. An essay on editing the text provides an in-depth look at the quartos and folios used in the edition.
- Context: Essays on Shakespeare's England, language, and life, along with essays on performing Shakespeare and significant performances, frame the play in both historical and theatrical context for readers. A look at the lasting influence of the play on music, art, film, and dance creates an interdisciplinary framework with which to approach the play.
- Notes: Through one-word margin definitions, facing-page glosses, and longer end notes after each play, the series' approach to notes pulls readers away from the text fewer times while providing them with more information and comprehensive analysis.
- Further Reading - An annotated bibliography of titles, hand-selected by the introduction author, takes readers beyond the edition for further reading. Macbeth--Shakespeare's dark and bloody “Scottish play”--is one of the first two works we're offering. It includes contextualizing essays and timelines by scholar Jesse M. Lander, in collaboration with one of the world's foremost Shakespeare authorities, David Scott Kastan of Columbia University.

"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
