Episode 541. Pop-Up Shakespeare Book

Published by austin on

Artist Jennie Maizels talks about Pop-Up Shakespeare, the fun and interactive introduction to all of Shakespeare’s plays and poetry, with text by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor to be published September 2017 by Walker Books (UK & Australia) and Candlewick Press (US). Jennie discusses how the idea came to her, the surprisingly speedy agreement to collaborate, the power of Twitter, the theatricality of pop-up books, amazing first date material, compelling and sometimes competing visions, early experiences with Shakespeare, excellent editors, Instagram addictions, and the important existential question: why do people stop drawing?
