Insults With Intelligence

We all know someone who deserves to be dubbed a "penurious and indubitate beggar." And from time to time, you may be tempted to say that "he has not so much brain as ear-wax." This rollicking infographic is chock-full of such colorful insults from Shakespeare, the playwright who practically invented the art of the poetic put-down. Designer Tim Sanders culled the Oxford Complete Shakespeare to compile an endlessly entertaining word map of the Bard's boisterous, bawdy jabs, each one a mini-masterpiece of raunchy, rancorous Renaissance wit. The four-color, offset-printed poster on 100 lb., acid-free, FSC-certified paper makes the perfect reference and decor for an astute office, library, or thespian lounge. Made in Seattle.

Add our solid walnut framing rails that magnetically hold your print in place. Easy to install and reuse, they’re a cleverly designed solution for print display.

Tim and Aurelia Sanders think people should enjoy more mirth. They mixed together data visualization, writing, and humor to create artwork that was smart as well as funny. Their process begins with a mix of ideas and sketches, which are gradually refined through research, experimentation, and "occasional hair pulling." Timothy employs his background as an art director and playwright, and Aurelia keeps their projects well edited and on track. "It's a great pleasure to see a passerby stop at one of our posters, lean in close, and start to laugh," they say.

Have a peek at Tim's sketchbooks to see how his thought process works as he creates new posters.

I had been expecting a book, not a poster, so I was a little surprised and disappointed when the product arrived. Based on the product title, "A Grand Treasury of Shakespearean Insults," I had expected a book, not a poster, and that the image was that of the cover. It was my fault for not reading the description, but perhaps the word "chart" or "poster" should be added to the product name. It was on back order, so there was no time to return it before Christmas for something else.

The scroll like design and parchment like paper work perfectly here. Together they make it more of a period piece. It's very eye catching.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Shakespearean Insults Chart:

    This chart is a really lovely display and great source of amusement. I consider it a guide to keeping insults at a high level and to avoiding the current tendency of many to let insults sink into the gutter.

    I'd recommend that Melania Trump purchase one of these for her husband. Maybe it would be a great idea for anyone who lives their life on Twitter. Help raise the standard of discourse.
