More than 120 (85 in full-color) illustrations include the published works of many artists, drawn from a dozen plays and showcasing a rich diversity of imaginative styles and treatments. Highlights includeimages byArthur Rackham and W. Heath Robinson from "A Midsummer Night's Dream"; John Austen's interpretations of "Hamlet"; and episodes from "The Tempest" by Edmund Dulac and Walter Crane. Other featured artists include Charles Robinson, Frank Pape, Charles Folkard, Louis Rhead, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
