Father, dad, pops, old man, papi, daddy-o, poppa; so many names for that special man in your life. Time to celebrate him!
Are you having a hard time shopping for your dad this Father’s Day? Here are a few unique ideas we think your dad will enjoy.
In 1816 at the age of just 18, Mary Shelley envisioned a story which she hoped would strike fear in its readers and make them “dread to look round”. The most famous Gothic novel, adapted countless times for stage and screen has inspired numerous authors. The tale was born of a whimsical ghost-story competition, a challenge between friends initiated by Lord Byron.
To mark the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Editions des Saints Pères (SP Books) published a limited edition luxury facsimile of the original manuscript in Shelley’s own handwriting based on her notebooks held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. Each manuscript is printed to the highest quality using vegetal ink on environmentally friendly paper and presented in a 14×10” iron gilded slipcase. Available at www.spbooks.com.
