Frankenstein: The 200th Anniversary Edition

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is the first science fiction novel, according to some learned individuals. You should have already read it. You’ve had 200 years. Get on that.

To celebrate properly, what you need is this fancy anniversary edition, with illustrations by David Plunkert.

The entire book is all here, with brilliantly moody art. The colors are dull and beige, which evokes the dread that encompasses the whole story. Many of the pieces look like haphazard assemblies of patchwork, which is totally appropriate, because, you know, Frankenstein.

Here is another one of the pieces, which is attached in the book in a vinyl inlay.

Even if you own a dozen other copies of the story, the art makes this edition worth your purchase.

Besides, without this story, there would be no Young Frankenstein movie, and that is a dreadful happenstance that I cannot imagine.
