Weird Sisters

Poster design for Scholastic Books of a scene from Macbeth.

This was for a poster to introduce children to the delights of Shakespeare. A part of the witches'chant, "double double toil and trouble" etc. was to appear on the cauldron. The publishers found that they had to take great care as parts of the speech are, shall we say, not politically correct. That Shakespeare guy!

Also used on the cover of Rotten Relations, a collection of stories published by DAW Books. 15 tales of family skeletons, edited by Denise Little. It was our Christmas card a few years ago and was used on a German bookcover.

Also used on the cover of Pentacle magazine.
