A Midsummer Nights Dream
The front appears to be the classic Shakespearian comedy of fay mischief and
mistaken identity, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The front depicts Queen Titania,
under a spell lounging with Bottom, whom has had his head turned into that of an
ass'. Her maidens wonder at the her strange behavior and look on, all fo the
fairies highlighted in metallics and soft ethereal glitter.
The scene is encompassed by a forest-style border, painted in metallic greens, reds,
purples and gold. The title and author are in brilliant pearl.
The side features the title burned in surrounded in summer green and champagne,
accompanied by a little impish fairy charm.
The back is particularly
cool- its depicts two of our mortal lovers, lounging beside an Athenian temple,
Puck listening in on their plight. Its bordered by a Nouveau-style design all
in gold. The whole thing is sprayed with a glossy, protective
finish. The spine pictures above are from another project, but are
demonstrating the drawer. Pictures are a little fuzzy, but product represents
much better in person ;)
This is an absolutely wonderful piece for
any fan of literature, Shakespeare, fantasy or fairies. Would make a great gift
for yourself or for someone else. I also do custom work and love a good
challenge, so lets talk!
