Original grey cloth on boards. No writing. The only blemish I see is the remains of a price tag on DJ cover (The remains might be removed with water or steam). The introduction by Herbert Whittaker is masterful as he praises and lambastes the various actors. The photographs are so stolidly staged as to appear to be carved in wax if not in stone. To this recent immigrant "from away" (I came from Ohio over 40 years ago), seeing Don Harron greet William Shatner in The Taming of the Shrew brought wildly incongruous visions of Charlie Farquarson aboard USS Enterprise ! At any rate, this book will bring memories to anyone lucky enough to have visited Stratford's famous festival. 72 pp.
