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).

We have reached our first stretch goal! Now every edition of Frankenstein Illuminated will include a Ribbon Marker! 

Our next stretch goal is one of my favorites - Aged appearance applied by hand to cover. This is one of those additions that required a great deal of research and communication with the printers. It is something that I honestly cannot say that I have seen before!

New Giveaway:

Given the amazing positive response we received from our last giveaway, we thought we would do a second! This giveaway will be for a Signed and Numbered Artist Sketch edition of the Frankenstein Illuminated book. This reward is limited to only 30 copies - definitely a must have for collectors!
Normally retailing for $275, this edition will include a 4" sketch drawn by the artist, Matt Hughes, directly into the book.
How do you enter, you ask? Well, just follow the link below and complete the steps for submission. You can do one step or all of the steps but the more steps you take you  better your chances of winning (each step adds an entry into the drawing. Some even adds 4 entrees!)
