The Doctor Edition of Frankenstein attempts to incorporate the spirit of Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his (mis)deeds. It is quarter-bound in finest goatskin black leather and aluminium. The use of aluminium was inspired by an operating table and therefore a real surgeon’s needle was blocked onto the front cover. The spine is blocked in sliver, while the detailing on aluminium is engraved with laser. There are eight illustrations inside (two spreads) that are sensitive to heat, so they transform upon touch, which means each illustrations has two phases. It comes in a solander box that was inspired by a doctor’s tool bag from that era.
Please note that there will some slight improvements in the final product compared to this prototype. For example, marbled papers will have a smaller cellular pattern to make it more impactful.
