It’s Alive !

Last week, the New York Public Library‘s Biblion: The Boundless Library digital series released a fantastic free iPad app based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein. The intuitive, interactive app features a treasure trove of materials from the NYPL’s Pforzheim Collection of Shelley and His Circle, along with a wealth of commentary by experts on the Romantic era,original source materials, photos, essays, artwork and dramatic audio readings. One of the best features ( from the bibliophile’s perspective) is the ability to toggle between copies of Mary Shelley’s original handwritten 1816 draft pages and the typeset version from the 1831 edition.

You can get the free app at iTunes. If you don’t have an iPad you can still access the Frankenstein app at the NYPL Biblion link above.
