New Arden Covers

With apologies to Jonathan, the Arden Shakespeare still do the best looking covers of any individual Shakespeare series. Here's the next batch of goodies (not including this month's Winter's Tale).

    Very nice. The R & J cover is about 50 billion times nicer than its Arden 2 predecessor – surely the weirdest image to adorn any edition of any Shakespeare play in any series ever (shock-eyed girl looking for all the world like Lady M sleepwalking her way into a police lineup against an austere brown background)!

  2. What’s even scarier about the Arden 2 is that it’s SO like the Arden 2 King John. Clearly Arthur was next in the line-up.
