Description

Cropped image of Simon Brett's woodcut imprint of Antiochus' incestuous relationship with his daughter. In this edition, Brett frequenlty uses comic-book style images to imply the "dumbshows" or mime work which would have likely occurred in the background of an original Globe Pericles production.
