About the Book
This is a book dedicated to expanding our literacy knowledge through the medium of artistic interpretation of some of the most famous quotes of the playwright William Shakespeare.It is intended to question and prompt the viewer to discuss the deepest meanings of the English language and think about how words written around 400 years ago can still have a relevance and meaning to the lives of people living in the 21st century.A bringing together of modern-day imagery with these quotes provides a stunning juxtaposition for the viewer who is left questioning the method and style of artistic interpretation, and asking themselves 'is this how I would have interpreted this quote?'William Shakespeare is, without doubt, one of, if not the, greatest writers who ever lived on this earth. So much can be gained even from single lines of his text that it seems wrong not to give it the deepest artistic appreciation possible. Let us explore together a little of what Shakespeare still means to all of us today.

Antonisia Schroder’s photography has been shaped over years of experience and experimentation, beginning in South America before relocating to Europe and developing her career. Now a dual British/Brazilian citizen having first settled in the UK in the 1990s, she was born in Fortaleza, Brazil, in 1976. However, her family is Portuguese in origin. Antonisia was always inquisitive about the world around her; a quality that served her well as she grew older and began to see that world through a lens rather than the naked eye. She is a prolific photographer, book maker and artist and has held a number of solo exhibitions in the UK and further afield. She has also been nominated several times for the Brazilian International Press Awards in the art category. She has a BA and MA degree in art and photography and regularly runs workshops and training sessions for schools, colleges and other educational institutions. She is also a keen poet - using her love of it to record her thoughts.
