Illustrations for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

Frankenstein is possibly my favourite book ever, I love how the flowery prose and heavy romantic influences combine with the gruesome plot. I wanted to draw it a bit differently - giving a very vague, creepy idea of the monster, and mostly focusing in on details and scenery instead - and since I’m also really into fonts and layout, I mocked up the pages with the text and titles.

I think it’s also brilliant that though science fiction can be a disappointingly male-dominated genre, a book that’s often called the first real sci-fi novel was written by a female author.
