Shakespeare's sonnets are hand-screened onto sheets of white 100% cotton voile. These literary napkins arrive folded and enclosed in a classic string-tie envelope for a truly special delivery.

Each of the four napkins in the set is imprinted with two sonnets from the Fair Youth sequence. Sonnets I through VIII are used on the napkins. 

Here is Sonnet V:

Those hours that with gentle work did frame
The lovely gaze where every eye doth dwell,
Will play the tyrants to the very same
And that unfair which fairly doth excel;
For never-resting time leads summer on
To hideous winter and confounds him there;
Sap check'd with frost and lusty leaves quite gone,
Beauty o’ersnow'd and bareness every where.
Then, were not summer’s distillation left
A liquid prisoner pent in walls of glass,
Beauty’s effect with beauty were bereft,
Nor it, nor no remembrance what it was:
  But flowers distill'd, though they with winter meet,
  Leese but their show; their substance still lives sweet.

Unfolded napkin is 14" x 16". Four napkins per package.
