East of the Sun, West of the Moon


Came upon this gorgeous ebook courtesy of Maria Popova at Brainpickings.org. The illustrations are to die for - and remind me of the artwork by Stephen Crowe, who is illustrating all of Joyce's Finnegans Wake.

The way that these illustrations extend, expand, explore the texts they accompany makes me wonder (again) if high school students learning Shakespeare would understand the text more if they had to draw moments from every scene...
