450 Years of Shakespeare!
Celebrate 450 years of the Bard with Perma-Bound!
The man who observed that “All the world’s a stage” remains a star today, 450 years after his birth. His plays are staged more frequently now than they were in his lifetime, and they’ve been adapted and imitated endlessly. He is nearly the most-quoted English-language author in history (exceeded only by the translators of the King James Bible). Throughout 2014, Perma-Bound joins the rest of the world in recognizing Shakespeare’s incomparable genius. We’ll be complementing our already extensive Shakespeare offerings with special features and book sets. Join us in celebrating the life of the man whose contribution to world literature and the English language can perhaps best be summed up in one word (of his own coinage, of course): “priceless.”
