Description

A comic print used as a teaching aid in schools. The print uses geometrical shapes to form people and the text plays on the words of Shakespeare - particularly using the words 'form' and 'shape'. Here there is a quotation 'A pair of conscious lovers do not flout them, for both have plenty of good points about them'. Engraved from an original drawing by the caricaturist Henry Bunbury (1750-1811) in the posesion of the publisher.
