The Haunting Gothic Loveliness Of Frankenstein Art

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein has seized our imaginations for nearly 200 years. Frankenstein art ranges from the grotesque to the glamorous to the playfully weird... like this Frankenstein meets Vampirella image. The Frankensteinia blog has compiled some incredibly gorgeous Frankenstein art.

Frankensteinia launched in August 2007, and has covered everything from exploitation movies to trivia to weird art. If you're at all obsessed with the gothic and perverse, this blog is a major time sink — so be warned. We've been blown away by the breadth and depth of the Frankenstein art on the site, and here are a few of our favorite images. There is much, much more at the link. [Frankensteinia]

"I expected this reception," said the dæmon. "All men hate the wretched; how then must I be hated, who am miserable beyond all living things! Yet you, my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation of one of us. You purpose to kill me. How dare you sport thus with life? Do your duty towards me, and I will do mine towards you and the rest of mankind. If you will comply with my conditions, I will leave them and you at peace; but if you refuse, I will glut the maw of death, until it be satiated with the blood of your remaining friends."

Chills every time I read that. Shelly rocked heavily.
