Size: 30 x 45 inches

The 1932 film Frankenstein owed its instant, immense success to two factors: the performance of the then-unknown Boris Karloff and the character of the monster -- grotesque, and all the more frightening because of his human origin and characteristics. The book advertised here -- a publishing innovation of editor Richard Anobile -- allowed every unsettling word and scene to be relived through its frame-by-frame blow-ups and complete dialogue. The fine details and disturbing colors of this cover-art-turned-poster suggest why Melo continues to be sought as an illustrator for popular paperback series and why his work for science and occult fiction is so widely acclaimed.
