Shakespeare's secret love

Martin Droeshout engraved the most famous image of the Bard.

What wasn’t known was that Droeshout made a second version of his engraving, showing an altogether different side to Stratford’s finest. This image has been hidden from the world for almost 400 years, kept from sight by a mysterious sect of literary scholars: the Library of Sion.

It took the Professor over 17 years of detection, supposition and fingertip searches to uncover the whereabouts of the fabled Autoclaving Engraving (he never did find any fingertips). Following a breathless finale where the Prof dodged bullets, out-witted geniuses, got the girl and grappled an ancient clan of evil pixies, he returned to the lab, picture in hand. You can view it below…
