Although The Tempest was the first play to appear in the first official Folio printing of Shakespeare’s plays, it was almost certainly the last play he wrote. It held pride of place in that first collection, presumably because the editors thought it to be his masterpiece; a crowning glory to the career of the brightest of playwrights. Needless to say, we had to select the very best artists to do it justice, and to bring you the stunning artwork that you’ve come to expect from our titles. Poignant to the last, this book is a classic amongst classics. As with all our Shakespeare titles the period is faithful to the Bard’s intentions, and there is a choice of three text versions.
