      • Product Description:

        Shakespeare in 100 Objects - Treasures from the Victoria and Albert Museum.

         

        Within the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the world’s leading museum of art and design, there lies an extraordinary wealth of material relating to a single individual: the playwright William Shakespeare. 

         

        This book presents a fascinating selection of one hundred objects – often surprising, always delightful – chosen by the museum’s curators for the insight each affords into the world of Shakespeare and his plays. 

         

        Each object is illustrated in full colour and is accompanied by a compact essay on its history, its provenance, and what it has to tell us about Shakespeare and his plays, particularly in performance. The result is a book that not only underlines Shakespeare’s infinite variety, but also reveals his astonishing legacy in material things, a substantial pageant that has not faded.
