Beautiful finished copies for @allieesiri's next anthology Shakespeare For Every Day of the Year have arrived! 😍 ⠀
Each page of Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year contains an extract of his genius – a soliloquy, poem, quote or scene matched to the date. The introductory paragraphs serve as a window into the work, time and life of the greatest writer in the English language. Out on 19 September 2019.

Here's a look at an alternate poster design by @kgreens. We agreed that the poster we ultimately used was the best, but we both loved this one too much to let it go entirely.

Turbulence- Daniel Szalay ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
12 lives, flying across the globe, all interconnecting with one another. 12 lives which Szalay uses to depart from his critique of insecurity in ‘All That Man Is’, and land on an exploration of how in an increasingly connected world, our actions have consequences beyond what we can see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m a big fan of context in books. Why was it written? What is the authoring trying to convey? These questions are important in ‘Turbulence’, largely because what Szalay tries to convey isn’t what comes across, and instead an exploration into how our actions have consequences ends up as a rambling, bumbling mess which lacks the grace of ‘All That Man Is’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At times, the connecting factors between characters are so insignificant that they seem shoe-horned in, and at others they seemed so heavy handed they were unbelievable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even if the stitching between them was messy, the later stories seemed remarkably more interesting than the earlier 3/4, to the point where it felt like a different book. I understand this is supposed to be a commentary on how diverse the world is not only in terms of demographic but in terms of personality, but in a book about interconnectivity, I feel like it came across as a rather bizarre inclusion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Within these 3/4 good stories came the high point of turbulence. Individual struggles actually seemed realistic- affairs and family bonds mirrored the highs of Szalay’s previous work, but even writing this now I have to look at my journal to remind myself of the earlier stories. They came and went just like a turbulent flight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4/10- I feel like it was supposed to be a groundbreaking piece of art, but it ended up as a budget Cloud Atlas. -
Ice Cream Man from #ImageComics has been an incredible read. This #Horror#Anthology series has had some of the most interesting stories I've read to date including an entire issue that was a #palindrome (almost every piece of dialogue, even being able to read the issue back to front).
