Othello by Borbonesa

‘Othello – A Bestiary (With Floral Additions)’ is a wordless reworking of William Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’ as an illustrated collection of common, rare and fabulous animals.

In removing the text, Borbonesa present a deconstructed version of ‘Othello’ in which the storyline is plotted by the guinea-hens, baboons, blind puppies, strawberries and figs that inhabit the speeches of Shakespeare’s human characters.

The book is illustrated by Borbonesa's Ian Whitmore with a foreword by Anna Fewster and was originally published in September 2011 as a limited edition screen printed concertina-folded bookwork.
This reprinted edition is a laser-printed miniature version, bound in powder blue hardcovers.
