King Lear Illustrated by John Yunge-Bateman circa 1930s

Illustration // Wednesday, April 01, 2015
King Lear is one of the greatest tragedies ever written, and also one of its darkest and most f*cked-up. Its one of Shakespeare's finest, and if you have ever seen it on stage, or read the play, you know King Lear's situation with his 3 daughters and his impending death. Why are we talking Lear today? Well, according to i09, "In 1930, Curwen Press published an edition of William Shakespeare's King Lear with illustrations by artist John Yunge-Bateman."
