The Casual Optimist

Books, Design and Culture


  1. Love the idea, love the illustration.
    It seems like the trouble with illustrating Shakespeare is that a couple of crowns, a scepter, a knife and some blood could describe a lot of his plays, right?

  2. I think that’s a little unfair to both Shakespeare and the designer, Elias! Not all the plays are tragedies, and this is just a fraction of the covers — I think there are 30 or 40 books in this series!
