I got a wonderful bookish present from my cousin for Christmas. My family knows about my love for and my addiction with books. I had a lecture about Shakespearean times some semesters ago and I fell in love with the bard. It is not like I am reading all his plays like mad but I love to see his plays on stage. I saw the Hamlet version with Mel Gibson and Glenn Close in school and I also love Romeo and Julia with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.
When it comes to Shakespeare I also adore books that deal with his life. I have so many at home – haven’t read them all but I need to have them. What I love more than books about Shakespeare’s life are book dealing with him in any other ways, like in J. L. Carell’s book The Shakespeare Secret.
So back to the present my cousin gave me.
This is an indirectly lit black acrylic glass board with Shakespearean quotes on it.
It looks so amazing when the candles are lit behind it. The cut out quotes start to shine. Really cool and unique!
Because I am not sure if you can read the text at all I wrote it down here for you.
