nypl:

Today is Mary Shelley’s birthday, so we thought we’d share this - a video done by NYPL’s own Jonathan Blanc that animates the first book Mary Shelley was ever involved with (the video is narrated by award-winning British actor Simon Jones). Shelley was 10-years-old. The children’s book was completed in 1808. The full story of the book and the video is here, but for now, just enjoy. It’s very cool. And if you like Mary Shelley, stay tuned - a free exhibit, featuring parts of her Frankenstein manuscript, will be at NYPL next year!
