Description

"Nick Craine's remarkable recreation of Hollar's perspectival masterpiece speaks in its own terms. Internalizing a landscape makes it come alive in the imagination, the rhythm of the ink tuned to internal forms as line follows line.

The deeper goes the gaze the more lost to that world one becomes, the more the details speak in uncanny echoes."

-- From the folio notes by Daniel Fischlin

Shakespeare's London is a benchmark achievement in the career of one Canada's best-selling illustrators. A stunning 5-panel accordion fold that unfolds to 39" x 12.7", Craine's adaptation of Wenceslaus Hollar's epic Long View of London from Bankside is a preview of his 3-part graphic novel about Shakespeare, entitled Parchment of Light. Immersive and elliptically captivating, Shakespeare's London offers a new interpretation of Elizabethan London before the Great Fire.
