About The Cover

Cover image expansion

COVER The cover illustration reimagines the monster first conjured in Mary Shelley's 1818 novel. Two centuries later, the story of how the fictional Dr. Frankenstein built a creature from scavenged body parts and unleashed it on the world has lost none of its power to unsettle, and Frankenstein has become a byword for scientific overreach. See pages 137 and 146.
