A new collaboration between Misfit Inc. and Litographs will result in dozens of “wearable, totable and displayable” works using Shakespeare’s words.

For the past three years Litographs has been transforming classic texts into works of art that can be found on T-shirts, bags and posters. Now, they have announced a partnership with philanthropic creative group Misfit Inc. to create designs for all of Shakespeare’s works.

Over the next two years, they will be hosting a number of design competitions to help create the merchandise. The goal is to complete the project in time to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death in 2016.

In the strain of already existing designs, the products will use the text of the plays to “create images in the negative space that depict the crucial moment or theme of the story”. The print may be tiny, but it is there, and legible for those with good eyesight.

Litographs currently has designs available for Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and The Tempest available for order here.
