Revisiting a timeless classic with artist Stephanie Taylor
In 1818, Mary Shelley crafted one of history’s greatest literary achievements. A beacon before her time, she laid the foundation for many of the conversations we’re having today — from advancing science beyond human limits to our desire for societal acceptance. Some even say that the publishing of Shelley’s work made her an original feminist.
The I Street Press
is now available. The reimagined story was created for the 200th anniversary of the original publishing, and is a graphic
interpretation featuring over 120 original hand-drawn illustrations by prolific local artist
, along with an introduction by Library Director Rivkah K. Sass and essays by Stephanie Taylor and local literary blogger Carrie Sessarego
