The History of a Word 02/07/20
Publisher: Walker Books
Frankenstein tells the story of a privileged and self-absorbed young man whose arrogant obsession leads him to create a monstrous version of a human being.
Frankenstein abandons the physically grotesque creature he has created, leaving it to be reviled and rejected by mankind. As a consequence, its gentle nature is twisted and distorted until it becomes a veritable monster, wreaking havoc and bringing death and destruction in its wake.
This remarkable new version blends the finest contemporary illustration, dramatic storytelling and superb paper engineering. A combination of comic strip detail and stunning pop-ups on every spread bring each moment of the story to life, from the monster's creation to his dramatic demise.
