"Edward Gordon Craig (1872-1966) worked with the Moscow Art Theater beginning in 1908, collaborating with Konstantin Stanislavski (1863-1938) on a production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which finally opened in 1912. During this period, he released two portfolios of etched designed, one in 1908 and one in 1910, for various theater productions including his Hamlet. An advertisement for the first portfolio was published in The Mask."
