Susan is the Library Assistant at Lester B. Pearson High School, Calgary, Alberta Canada.
She has kindly shared this impressive display for Shakespeare's Birthday.
Here are her comments:'I wanted the display to look like an old book so I used a background of Shakespeare quotes on distressed paper. The border is cardboard, also distressed with water and spray paint. Finding a portrait of Shakespeare in poster size proved difficult, so I made my own. Just in case you think I am artistically inclined, I have to admit that I did both the background and portrait by projecting the design from a Word document onto paper and tracing it with markers. I placed the tri-fold on top of a bookcase filled with a variety of Shakespeare books, movies, and novels. It was a lot of work, but worth the time effort I put in.'
Thanks very much Susan - it's a wonderful display and well worth the effort as you can bring it out every year - that's if you can stop the English Department from stealing it first!
