Shakespeare posters: a call for entries

Steven Heller and Mirko Ilić are looking for submissions for their latest project – a book showcasing poster designs for Shakespeare plays.

Steven Heller and Mirko Ilić are looking for submissions for their latest project – a book showcasing poster designs for Shakespeare plays to mark the 400th anniversary of the writer’s death.

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.
