Synopsis:
Celebrating the bicentennial anniversary of Mary Shelley’s original 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, Rockport Publishers’ Classics Reimagined series presents this beautiful deluxe edition. The 248-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 David Plunkert’s mystical, layered interpretations.

Plunkert is the principal and primary illustrator at Spur Design in Baltimore, Maryland. The firm designs posters, covers, logos, brochures, and websites for publishers and corporations. His illustrations have appeared in Newsweek, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and LA Weekly, among many others. His steampunkish illustration and collage style give his characters a spooky, surrealistic quality. To see more of David’s work, visit davidplunkert.com.

The Classics Reimagined series is a library of stunning collector’s editions of unabridged classic novels illustrated by contemporary artists from around the world. Each artist offers his or her own unique, visual interpretation of the most well-loved, widely read, and avidly collected literature from renowned authors.
