Frankenstein Hard Cover Illuminated Edition

Created by Ethereal Visions Publishing

The world’s first science fiction novel—and for many, the world’s first truly unique novel in the English language—was the culmination of myriad threads of fate. Taking a step back from the well known and beloved Hollywood version of Mary Shelley’s groundbreaking creation, this edition of Frankenstein will approach the story of the creator’s original concept of Frankenstein’s Monster. This edition is a self-reflection of the darker side of Victor and the relationship to his creation. Each chapter of this edition will have an original line illustration header created in the traditional style of artists such as Edmund Dulac and Arthur Rackham from the early to mid 1900’s. The book will feature four stunning tipped-in color plates revealing the journey of the monster from conception to birth to self-awareness and finally to the acceptance of mortality and solitude. This unique publication will include: • Hard cover 10" x 7.25" portrait Casebound; smyth sewn • Gold foil stamp with two colors on front and spine of cover • 240 pages (100gsm dong fang cream wood free pages) • Two color black and red interior (black text with red line illustrations on every chapter header) • Four full color tipped-in plates on tinted paper • Illustrated end pages • Ribbon marker • Gilded stained edges • Tissue covers for the 4 tipped-in plates • Frontispiece illustration • Aged appearance applied by hand to cover This edition will come complete with a foreword by Sean Kotz (Radford University Instructor, Cinema; Director, Horse Archer Productions).

Books have shipped

What does it look like when 1000 books arrive at your doorstep? Pretty much like this :-)

Normally, we have our books sent to a fulfillment center for shipping, but we discovered the expected ship-out date FROM the fulfillment center would be late December (if we were lucky). We knew everyone would not receive their orders before the end of the year and this was not acceptable at all. It was extremely important to us that everyone receive their books as soon as possible so we decided to do the unthinkable...


The artist hard at work
Creating a wall of Frankenstein
Just some of the boxes!
The boxing begins!!

As some of you have noticed, we have shipped out 99% of rewards - over 352 packages of Franky goodness. The only rewards remaining to be shipped are the Limited Artist Sketch Editions which Matt will begin work on this weekend. We hope to have those out to backers be the end of next week.

This is one of those hurdles that small publishers like us have to deal with. But, it is truly amazing what some music and a fourth or fifth cup of coffee can do - MAXIMUM EFFORT!!

Anyway, we would VERY much appreciate it if when everyone receives their books that you tag us in a pic on Instagram of your book! Our tag is @EtherealVisionsPub -

Thank you again to everyone for all of your support and patience. On to Bram Stoker's Dracula Illuminated!

Hope and Matt
