Zoom View Show Original
Flowers are a frequent element of Shakespeare's writing. His enchanting descriptions of both the wild and cultivated flowers of Elizabethan England easily relate to human life through his gift of poetic imagery. These beautiful playing cards, illustrated by artist Ann Gillies, bring to life the character of 54 different flowers, showing common and Latin names, with a quote from the work of Shakespeare.
