    Humor-ous Description: Display a piece of classic literature with its age and character intact. A unique addition to anyone’s den, office, study, foyer, billiard room, or ballroom. Or maybe you want it in the bathroom, and hey, who are we to judge? We could go on and on trying to combine complicated adjectives to motivate you to purchase our product, in fact we wish we could. But we can’t. We're too busy doing things like trying to age paper without it disintegrating in our hands, or getting our fingers stuck in the mechanism of a 71 year-old death-trap of a typewriter. (Wall behind print not included.)

    Humor-less Description: We’ve hand typed the poem “Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day?” by William Shakespeare. (11 x 14 prints are machine printed using high-quality pigment based inks and are hand-aged.) All our prints use paper we have personally aged through our own multi-staged process. The pictures are taken without glass so you can see the detail, but be assured framed prints will ship with glass installed!

        Poem Text

        "Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
        Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
        Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
        And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
        Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
        And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
        And every fair from fair sometime declines,
        By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;
        But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
        Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
        Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
        When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
        So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
        So long lives this, and this gives life to thee."
