We are such stuff as dreams are made on, declares Prospero, the grand old wizard of Shakespeare's final comedy. The most lavish version ever produced of Shakespeare's tale of romance and restitution, this profusely illustrated hardcover edition does full justice to the play's dreamlike grandeur. The complete text is accompanied by 40 full-color plates by the great Edmund Dulac, whose penchant for fantasy subjects is ideally suited to envisioning the enchanted island and its strange denizens.

His work encompasses a wide variety of themes and styles, although he preferred to work in watercolors and remains best known for his imaginative illustrations for fairy tales and other children's books.
