Books that I love: Special editions of Frankenstein and Books of Blood

This June/July, I travelled to Sao Paulo, Brazil to spend some time with my parents, brother and extended family. Besides the amazing moments I got, I received some beautiful and great books as gifts. I’d like to share with you two classics (one old, one modern) of Dark Fiction.

I’ve been in love with their layout and paper and you can have a glimpse here on this short video.

Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley was even more special, due to the extra illustrations and the 4 bonus short stories. However, my favourite cover is that of Books of Blood, by Clive Barker. It’s utterly beautiful.
