Follow The Folio: The Fascinating History Of Shakespeare On Paper says
Many people know the history of William Shakespeare the man, but how about the history of Shakespeare’s words: the famous First Folio, compiled in 1623, nearly a decade after his death, by his friends, admirers and fellow authors? In this talk, audiences will follow the 400-year history of these printed copies of Shakespeare’s plays as they track the (sometimes rocky) course these works have taken to be with us today. Attendees will also get to examine a facsimile (that is, an exact replica) of the First Folio up close to get a look inside the pages that will be locked away behind glass at the 2016 exhibition.
