ASC 400th Anniversary of The Death of William Shakespeare
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances". So begins a monologue in William Shakespeare's As you like it. However for Shakespeare himself it seems that his plays and sonnets have provided him with more permanent place in hearts and minds throughout the world. To mark the 400th anniversary of his death Ascension Island and Tristan Da Cunha have commissioned Victor Ambrus to illustrate a series of atmospheric postage stamps depicting some of Shakespeare's more colourful characters from the three dramatic genres of comedy, tragedy and history.
