"Thou shouldst print more, not let that copy die"

This quote from William Schakespeare¬īs Sonnet No. 11 reminds the mysterious Youth of his obligation to make "copies" of himself (children), not to let the original template perish. Let us take this line a little less carnally here and instead try to further the wonderful means which the Petrarchan Sonnet Form provides to express ourselves - in our time, in our respective languages and through our own efforts - with ever new templates and prints and copies worldwide!
