Listorama: RSC pencils

Shakespearean pencils
Ms Beta left these on my desk, to fill in a wedding invite, in the absence of her silver pen. What I didn't realize is that the pencils have these following messages on them:

'pure congealed white' – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

'she did commend my yellow stockings' – Twelfth Night

'this rotten orange' – Much Ado About Nothing

'with eyes as red as new-kindled fire' – King John

'i am the very pink of courtesy' – Romeo and Juliet

'sing all a green willow must be my garland' – Othello

'green indeed is the colour of lovers' – Love’s Labours Lost

'their blue coats brushed' – The Taming of The Shrew

'is black so base a hue?' – Titus Andronicus

'low and browner than her brother' – As You Like It

'our younger brown' – Antony and Cleopatra

You can get your own RSC ephemera here.
