Royal Mail
Shakespeare

William Shakespeare is considered the greatest writer in the history of the English language. With 2016 marking the 400th anniversary of his death the Royal Mail invited us to design a set of stamps and accompanying presentation pack to commemorate his lasting legacy.

Each stamp features a typographic interpretation of quotations taken from some of his most famous works. The presentation pack chronicles his life and printed works, written by Sir Jonathan Bate.
