It’s been a few years since we’ve explored Shakespeare’s Love Sonnets, but this gorgeous book illustrated by Caitlin Keegan is beckoning us to dive back in. Composed of 29 out of the beloved writer’s 154-piece collection — which Keegan diligently picked — the book is full of hand-drawn touches with typography highlighting the first letter of every poem, alongside lush, full-page patterns and illustrations that encompass each sonnet’s spirit. It’s a beautiful and romantic page-turner, full of rich colors and whimsical, modern depictions of the poem’s sentiments, visuals and metaphors. Spy a few of Shakespeare’s love-adorned, iambic pentameter lines coupled with Keegan’s inspiring illustrations below, and pick-up a copy over here.
