Cool! This is a favorite novel of mine so your post caught my eye!
I’m glad you enjoyed it! I love the novel, too, which is why I had to share this illustration. Thanks for stopping by!
Good Lord, Cooke looks like a giant here! And the play had songs – a musical Frankenstein in 1823!
Thanks for posting this.
I would love to be able to travel back to 1823 in order to see this production. It sounds like something else.
One of the reasons I love this illustration is because Cooke looks so massive.
