Centuries of Shakespeare on view

The exhibition “‘That in Black Ink My Love May Still Shine Bright’: Selections from Five Centuries of Printed Works of William Shakespeare” opened this week in Jackson Library.

UNCG’s Special Collections and University Archives presents a collection of rare and unique printed works of William Shakespeare. Selected works provide a multi-century overview of the impact of Shakespeare on western print culture and its collective literary imagination. Highlights of the exhibit include a 1632 copy of Richard III, a complete 1685 4th Folio, and a 1979 Circle Press copy of Antony and Cleopatra with a beautiful binding designed by world renowned bookbinder Monique Lallier.

This exhibition, in the Hodges Reading Room of Jackson Library, is part of UNCG’s The Globe and the Cosmos series.
