Shakespeare & Co.

Design by Jason Booher

Not entirely sure if the humor of this comes across online, but there's something about the great big heads of the Renaissance's foremost writers and dramatists on spindly little legs that made me giggle and, more importantly, pick up the book.

Humor aside, though, this is a nice way to fill out the frame without reverting to the all-too-familiar Brady Bunch grid approach:



not to mention Shakespeare only has one leg.

@Ken: LOL. Actually, I think he's just doing a ballet position. Someone will have to tell us which one.

That's really amusing. I think what i like best about it is the irreverent way that the heads are overlapping. Nice.
