Stunning Laser-Cut Paper Illustrations of Macbeth
A classic masterpiece of dramatic art, newly celebrated with a masterpiece of papercraft.
By Maria Popova
As a lover of exquisitely crafted books, papercraft, and book art, and a longtime fan of artist Kevin Stanton’s superb cut-paper illustration, I was instantly taken with this lavish edition of Macbeth (public library), featuring Stanton’s intricate masterpieces of layered laser-cut color paper.
The art appears alongside scholarly context, commentary, and illustrated essays on Shakespeare’s language and the play’s performance history.
