A visual exploration of the classic Frankenstein - re-imagined and retold this book celebrates the original 1818 text, bringing it to life and into the contemporary landscape. The aim is to take Frankenstein off the shelf and put it on the coffee table, for audiences that know and love the story of for those who want to immerse themselves at a faster pace than having to read the whole text.
The cover explores the idea that the ‘monster’ is not the villain but that our greed for personal success & social prejudices are the real evils. Here the monster is represented on the ‘good’ side in white whilst the man behind the monster, Victor Frankenstein who represents those evils hides shamefully in the shadows behind him - facing backwards reflecting back on his mistakes like he does later on in the story. When the sleeve is folded out the ‘monster & Frankenstein stand together at each others side giving the ‘monster’ his final wish of not being alone.
