Remember Salvador Dali’s illustrations of Don Quixote? Well, apparently he gave Shakespeare’s classic love story the same treatment. Brain Pickings’ Maria Popova — who is all over the literary art beat — writes,

In 1975, the iconic Spanish surrealist illustrated an ultra-limited, presently impossible to find edition of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, published by Rizzoli in a red silk slipcase and featuring 10 lithographs by Dalí. Only 999 copies were published.

For a larger sampling of Dali’s R&J work, head over to Brain Pickings.
