The book will be published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2016. Ilić and Heller are looking for submissions from around the world and also plan to use entries in a promotional exhibition exploring Shakespeare’s influence on contemporary theatre.
A former art director at the New York Times, Heller has written for more than 100 design books and collaborated with Ilić last year on Lettering Large, a publication exploring monumental typography in urban settings.
The deadline for Shakespeare poster submissions is March 14 and works must have been published – personal and student projects will not be accepted. Files can be submitted online or by post and a printed copy should also be supplied for use in the exhibition.
