Shakespeare is Back!


R.D. Scinto, Inc. is proud to announce a new series of Shakespeare classes at the Corporate 3 Auditorium with the multi-talented Leo Schaff.

The next NWS class returns on Feb. 4, 2020. Please note: There will be no class on Tuesday, Feb. 25. Classes resume on March 3rd.

A leather-bound first edition can cost $700 to $800. A new copy is just $22 at Amazon and elsewhere.

The illustrations used in our presentation of The Tempest are by Edmund Dulac.

A bored French law student who switched his studies to art, Edmund Dulac began his artistic career by winning prizes at the Ecole des Beaux Arts.

At 22 he left his home in Toulouse and moved to London’s Holland Park. Dulac arrived in London in 1904 just as dawn broke for lavish gift-book publishing in England and America.

He was commissioned to illustrate Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. And nine other books of works by the Brontë sisters. He joined the London Sketch Club making valuable professional contacts. Leicester Galleries commissioned illustrations from him. Edmund Dulac was a new, young artist of enormous potential.

After the tremendous enthusiasm that greeted Arthur Rackham’s Rip Van Winkle in 1905 and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens in 1906, Hodder & Stoughton approached Edmund Dulac for the publishing rights to his illustrations in order to produce its own series of gift books.

Thus began a remarkable run that commenced with Stories from the Arabian Nights in 1907, with fifty full-page color designs; and The Tempest in 1908, with its own forty pages of color in Dulac’s inimitable style. His annual gift books continued for another decade, though few matched these early works for their sheer abundance of imagery.

One of his most outstanding efforts in book illustration, Dulac’s The Tempest remains the most spectacular edition ever produced of Shakespeare’s strange and ever-compelling drama.

Nights with Shakespeare at the Corporate Three Auditorium

 

 

“With 32 buildings totaling over 2.5 million square feet of space and an occupancy rate of nearly 98% – soaring well above national averages – I realized long ago that excellence in personal service both retains tenants and captures new ones. More than anything, this philosophy has translated into a successful business model within commercial property ownership and management.”
