Welcome to The Frankenstein Project by SuperMonsterCity! This edition is the original 1818 text written by Mary Shelley and includes 17 newly created images from artists in 8 countries and from all across the United States. These seventeen artists capture the spirit of key moments within the Shelley novel. Each artist featured in this book will receive a portion of the proceeds. With The Frankenstein Project we are pleased to pay homage to Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and the enduring legacy of her classic novel. Shelley's "Creature" has provided so much inspiration and consolation to so many, for 200 years. This is the least we at SuperMonsterCity! could do to honor her. Artworks were created in a variety of media, from oil, tempura and watercolor paints, to pen and ink, pencil and charcoal drawings; from digital submissions to sculptures, 3D printed objects, and shadow boxes. The range of interpretations and the contexts is impressive, reflecting the deep and powerful impact of Mary Shelley's influence across the centuries. We hope you enjoy this edition and will continue to support the artists and jurors that made this project possible.
