Look Here: Two plays by Shakespeare with cover art by Milton Glaser

I only have two battered volumes of the Signet Classic Shakespeare Series of paperbacks with cover art in pen and ink and wash by Milton Glaser in my book collection, but they are definitely worth scanning for display here, so… voilà!

If Glaser’s drawing for the cover of The Tempest looks vaguely familiar to you, it might be because you’ve seen Glaser’s famous psychedelic poster of Bob Dylan, created for the release of Dylan’s 1967 “Greatest Hits” album…

  1. Stunningly beautiful. In fact, I have been collecting the extremely well-edited and produced Signet works of Shakespeare, mostly for the fabulous Glaser covers!
