Frankenstein Re-design


Collaborative project with Xiouyuan Gao and Pascal Burgers
The  famous novel Frankenstein, written by Mary Shelley (Wollstonecraft Godwin) that was published in 1818, is heavily edited by her husband.  Oxford university published the notes and edits made by Mary and  mostly her husband, Percy Shelley.  We decided it would only be fair to give credits to her original writing, as women rights from the time of publishing were very limited, we thought it was time to re-publish her original writing and cross out Percy’s edits. To really show the beauty  of her own type of writing, very ahead of her time and easy to read for modern readers.
