Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

In a special collaboration to celebrate 400 years of Shakespeare’s legacy, Penguin Classics and the Shakespeare Birthplace trust created exclusive ‘Shakespeare inspired’ editions of The Sonnets & A Lover’s Complaint, Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Each book has an exclusively designed cover with the Shakespeare Trust logo in embossed gold foil and information inside on the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

This was then followed a year later by an exclusively designed clothbound edition of the sonnets, in purple cloth with a blue foil pattern and matching endpapers.
