New Improved Shakespeare

I like this newly discovered face of Shakespeare. It has character. It is “as a book where men may read strange matters.” It could be the face of genius. There's just something about it. Maybe it's the eyes. Less world-weary than the old Droeshout engraving. More alive with a sense of inquiry and irony. Yes, I like this Shakespeare. He looks a fellow of most excellent fancy.
