Wednesday Giggles: Shakespeare Version

I don't know about you, but I've been in need of a good dose of laughter and awesome and I got it when I ran across graphic designer Mike Young's sweet cover designs for some classic Shakespeare plays. I think my favorites are the MacBeth and Romeo & Juliet covers.
Don't you want them on your shelf? Make sure to stop in and click on each thumbnail to get the full effect.

Thanks to The Olive Reader for the heads up!

  7. Those are brilliant! I guess they are just a graphic design exercise? If they were real I would utterly get Twelfth Night for my big sister. Love the little mustache.
