8 New Shakespeare Retellings And Adaptations That Will Change The Way You See The Bard
We saw two challenges ahead of us when we started working on the covers for the Hogarth Shakespeare series. First, how do we develop a unified look across the series, while allowing each work to maintain its own personality? We used this effect for all the covers. We used an old botanical drawing of a peony, giving it a contemporary twist by placing it in front of a striking blue background. Each cover has an abstract feel, which gives the series a unified look — but the images are also important symbols from the individual stories, so the covers work on their own too. This seemed like something that could potentially be carried through to future designs.

Writers new and seasoned, adult and YA, continue to try and work and rework his originals in new and exciting ways,. William Shakespeare is more than a celebrated author, more than a literary legend — he's a writing god. His work isn't just in the canon, it is the canon. His dramas, comedies, tragedies, and poetry changed the way writers approached the craft and the way people consumed it, and he continues to shape the way people read and write today. There's a reason why every high schooler in America was forced to read his plays and memorize his poems, a reason why every English and comparative literature student had to take an entire class dedicated to his body of work. Shakespeare may have written his last words over years ago, but his work continue to lives on in modern literature.
