Dorling Kindersley Publishing Inc. (DK) will release the book "Essential Shakespeare Handbook," by Leslie Dunton-Downer and Alan Riding on April 23, 2004, the playwright's birthday. The handbook has unique crossover appeal, according to company executives. DK plans to market it to people interested in brushing up on poet William Shakespeare before seeing one of his plays and for students seeking an easy-to-digest guide to the writer. DK is calling the book the first fully illustrated Everyman's guide to the works of Shakespeare. It includes numerous color photographs, charts and fact boxes. Additionally, it provides computer-generated comparisons of the number of lines for each act.
