To celebrate National Shakespeare Day, we thought we would share some beautiful copies of Shakespeare’s works. These copies were bound by Talwin Morris (1865-1911) was a prolific book designer and decorative artist working in Glasgow in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is particularly known for his Glasgow Style book designs, furniture and metalwork. We hold an extensive collection of book designs by Morris, across all periods of his output, and have some very beautiful copies of Shakespeare’s writing.
