With detailed and evocative imagery, renowned artist David Plunkert takes readers on a dark journey into the greatest novel in the monster genre, Frankenstein.

Over two centuries after Mary Shelley's original version, Rockport Publisher's Classics Reimagined series presents this beautiful deluxe edition.
