About this book
Offers a completely new approach to one of the most exceptional creative imaginations in history. 250 illustrations present an extraordinary variety of objects including portraits, playing cards, reliquaries, weapons, coins and clothing.
Presents a fresh view of the early modern world through the eyes of Shakespeare, his players and audiences. This book illustrates the Catholic counterculture that is revealed through the failed Gunpowder Plot, which was later to prove the inspiration for "Macbeth".
