For this impressive edition of Shakespeare's classic tragedy, key moments of the play are rendered as stenciled images in two colored layers of laser-cut paper. We see the ghost speak to Hamlet, the Player king performing, Hamlet stabbing Polonius, Ophelia drowning, and the graveyard scene, while on the cover, the Prince of Denmark makes a mask of Yorick's skull. Along with these set pieces, the book features three-color printing and additional illustrations throughout, a text edited by Shakespeare scholar Jeff Dolver, a substantial introduction, and appendices that explore staging, past productions, and alternate sources.
