"Presenting Shakespeare" to be mentioned in The New York Times

Appearing in this Sunday's (2/28) Theater Section of The New York Times:
On March 28, Theater for a New Audience (home to Trevor Nunn’s production of “Pericles”) and Princeton Architectural Press will host a free discussion about poster design for Shakespeare’s works, pegged to “Presenting Shakespeare: 1,100 Posters from Around the World,” a hefty compendium of artwork from 55 countries. The most striking posters in the book are the brainy minimalists, like the giant gloved and clenched fist in a French production of “Othello,” or the deliciously morbid meat ice cream cone in an Argentine “Hamlet.” The discussion will be led by Mirko Ilic and Steven Heller, the book’s authors, and feature the graphic designers Milton Glaser and Paul Davis."
