Acclaimed as the first modern horror novel and a founding text of the science fiction genre, this is Mary Shelley's masterpiece, superbly and sympathetically illustrated with wood engravings by Lynd Ward.
Frankenstein ranks among the most popular novels ever written, and this illustrated edition is especially rewarding. Its 64 distinctive engravings by Lynd Ward, a master of woodcut technique, combine elements of Art Deco and German Expressionism. Ward's unusual perspectives and dramatic light-and-dark contrasts offer the perfect complement to Shelley's Gothic masterpiece. Reprint of the Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, New York, 1934 edition.Illustrations:
