In working on this fun project, we discovered that there is a LOT of literature misattributed to Shakespeare - especially on products. Before you buy something that quotes him, you can check to see if the designer really knows their Bard, or is making it up based on SparkNotes translations, quote crawler bots, the libretto from Verdi's Falstaff, or just googling "Shakespeare quote about love" and mindlessly sticking anything that pops up onto their product.
We promise we'll try harder than that - look for a Shakespeare-themed product in the coming year! And if you've got suggestions for what you'd like to see on it, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
