Shakespeare Week

This week we’re celebrating Shakespeare Week on campus with a variety of events and displays.

In the Eastern Gateway building you will find on display of books from Special Collections Shakespearean collections alongside elaborate costumes made for Sir Mark Rylance’s play I am Shakespeare. On this blog you will find images from books that didn’t make it into the display, and can also read previous blog posts about the collection.

Baconiana

Baconiana is the oldest book in Brunel Library’s collection, and featured as one of our 50 objects in 2016.

 

 

 

First Folio and Bendy

Here, our facsimile copy of Shakespeare’s First Folio is being read by our mascot, Bendy Brunel, as part of our blog post on How to use Special Collections.
