I really enjoyed Jack's post called "Merchandising Shakespeare", showing several antique Victorian advertising tradecards from whiskey and beer companies that used the Bard to peddle and pitch their wares.
I can imagine Shakespeare altering his own famous line about lawyers in Henry VI, Part 2. It would become:Be sure to explore the BOTTLES, BOOZE, AND BACK STORIES archives for lots of bottles and advertising info and images.
“First let’s kill all the ad men.”
Or perhaps you'd rather read Shakespeare's lines that mention drinking? Then check out The Boozy Bard (read some pages on Amazon).
