Canada’s entry in the Oxford Bodleian Library’s celebrations of 500 years of William Shakespeare

This is Canada’s entry in the Oxford Bodleian Library’s celebrations of 500 years of William Shakespeare.

Ours is printed by Alex Widen of Clinton, BC, a former Vancouver printer and colleague of Jim Rimmer. Ingeburg van Hammerstein is a local artist with whom I did a book of Shakespeare’s “Dark Lady” sonnets.
