Comment: 	Re: SHK 18.0536 James D. Linton, Illustrator

What a find, James!  Since the letter reads, "The only other colour 
book..." does this mean your copy of MOV is in color?  What I'm 
wondering is, if so, how is Shylock depicted?  Does he have a red beard 
or red hair?  I only ask in tandem with the recent thread on "Redheads," 
because I'm curious to know how the illustrator represents this famous 
Jewish character and if it is in keeping with what members have posted 
about Elizabethan stage traditions.

Thanks,
Nicole Coonradt
