Sonnets 2016

In a cycle of 154 short, 14-line poems first published in 1609, William Shakespeare meditated on themes of love, death, and desire. During 2016, the Bodleian Libraries will be producing and collecting newly printed copies of each of Shakespeare’s sonnets. The Bodleian is seeking examples from hand-press printers worldwide made in this, the 400th year since the death of William Shakespeare.
 
Contributions of individual sonnets by Shakespeare, whether in English or in translation, will be welcome from printers up to the deadline of 30 September 2016. These should be created by hand, using any means of relief printing.  Selected submissions, forming at least one complete collection of Shakespeare’s 154 sonnets, will be added to the Bodleian’s permanent collection and the donors will be notified.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What processes of printing can be used? A. Any relief printing process is acceptable.
Q. Must the paper used be of a standard size for all the sonnets printed? A. No.
Q. May I include my name, or imprint, on the printed sheet? A. Yes.

If you would like to join this effort, please:

  1. Email bookcentre@bodleian.ox.ac.uk, stating which sonnet you would like to print. See the list of sonnets below, by number and by first line. If your choice is already being created by another printer, we will ask you to print another one for the project.
  2. Send the printed copy by post to:
    SONNETS 2016, Centre for the Study of the Book, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BG, United Kingdom
    Include with the package the printed form, available for download here
    , which requests information on the location of your press, the process used, and the names of any contributing designers or artists.
  3. You are encouraged to share your sonnet, in progress or complete, via social media: please tag the Bodleian Libraries as appropriate (see a list of our social media accounts) and use the hashtag #154sonnets.
  4. The Bodleian cannot ensure that all sonnets submitted will be included in the permanent collection; any received by the deadline will be acknowledged and portrayed in the Libraries’ publicity.

The library launches this effort with Sonnet 59, printed at the Bodleian’s Bibliographical Press, the letterpress workshop located in the Old Bodleian Library.
