The Art of Frankenstein

The Art of Frankenstein

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.

In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein, we’re releasing a reimagination of Shelley’s work. The limited-edition piece from the I Street Press features illustrations by artist Stephanie Taylor, depicting her vision of Shelley’s work. Meet Taylor as she joins blogger Carrie Sessarego in conversation about Frankenstein at several local libraries in the New Year.  

Special thanks to the Friends of the Sacramento Public Library for their support.
