Midsummer Night's Dream
A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is retold by Edinburgh-based artist Joanna Robson as a wordless narrative using a combination of old and new technologies: intaglio printmaking and laser cutting.  The result is a panoramic piece of book art that visually narrates the story and draws inspiration from the imagery of the text.


A Knavish Lad has been over two years in the making and was created to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.  It was made possible with the generous support from the Hope Scott Trust.
