In front of specially invited guests, she spoke about her father Sam Wanamakerís friendship with Sutton, who designed a beautiful, characteristically colourful poster to celebrate the opening of Shakespeareís Globe in 1997.

The poster was to be the first of many vibrant images inspired by Shakespeare and his plays. Sutton has described Shakespeareís writings as Ďmagicalí, and the same could certainly be said for his own works of art.
