It is no secret that my favorite monster is the one built by Dr. Frankenstein. A few days ago, this icon turned 200 years old! Mary Shelly dreamed him into life and his story has seen many forms and incarnations, but none as good or profound or heart-wrenching as the original black and white print in the book.
To celebrate his bicentennial birthday, Frankenstein gets re-released in a special 200th Anniversary Edition.
“The 256-page hardcover book features an 8-page vellum insert detailing the doctor’s designs, and a stunning, full bleed, double gatefold image of the monster. Finished with printed endpapers and painted book block, this masterpiece volume is perfect for book lovers and art lovers alike.
The suspense and horror of Dr. Frankenstein reanimating assembled body parts, the monster spying on an unknowing family, and the creature’s revenge on his maker take on whole new meaning when accompanied by Plunkert’s mystical, layered interpretations.”
This extremely special collector’s item will be released on January 16, 2018.
