King Lear, Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night, Macbeth, Hamlet, and the Merchant of Venice are among the Shakespearean plays that come to life in this interactive pop-up portfolio of the Bard and the Globe Theatre in London.

Shakespeare’s Globe, created by Toby Forward and Juan Wijngaard, features a dramatic pop-up model of the Globe Theater, a twelve-page history the theater, pamphlets containing scenes form notable plays by William Shakespeare, and ten punch-out strips of characters.  Each strip of characters can be placed on the stage as one reads the scenes from a play.—Stephen van Dyk, photos by Elizabeth Broman
