Vodafone UK, British Library team for Shakespeare project

Friday 22 April 2016 | 11:01 CET | News
Vodafone UK has teamed with the British Library to make some of the earliest and rarest editions of Shakespeare's plays available to all. Rolls of 'digital library' wallpaper featuring QR codes on the spines of virtual books will allow the public to download the first editions of fourteen of Shakespeare's plays, including Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet, from the British Library collections. The wallpaper will also provide digital links through to the British Library's Discovering Literature website.
