Shakespeare's sonnet 73

Shakespeare's sonnet 73


Of all Shakespeare’s writing, his sonnets are the most enduringly popular. And it’s not hard to see why: however we have felt when in love, whether it’s ecstatic, jealous, peaceful, desperate, submissive or just plain happy, there will be a sonnet in his collection of 154 that will speak to our condition.

These typographical prints each take one sonnet and set it in its entirety, embellished with famous or profound lines, in a typographic style reminiscent of highly ornamented eighteenth-century printing.

Sonnet 73 is a melancholy meditation on ageing, but also the recognition of a person’s love for another whose life might be drawing to a close, ‘To love that well which thou must leave ere long’.
