We are proud to announce the publication of our first "handmade digital book": the classic Frankenstein reinterpreted with the paintings of Frank Espinosa. Frank Espinosa has created over 60 original works of art in acrylic on paper to visualize Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in his own unique way. These images accompany the unabridged version of the story, as well as an audio-book component, which is now available on the iBooks platform.

“Working in the audio book format is a little different from narration or voiceovers. With movies or documentaries I may be speaking to an audience numbering in the thousands – or millions. With an audio book I am really speaking to just one person – you! Narrating an audio book is a very personal exchange and in many ways resembles how we first listened to the stories our parents told us before going to bed.

When I’m telling you an audio book story I often use a number of distinctive voices to make each character more alive. For example, in “Frankenstein,” I developed six distinct voices for the characters. To keep the story interesting I have to adapt my reading to the mood, emotions and pacing needed to fully develop the storyline.”
John Ford has done voiceovers for animated films, home video releases, and documentaries. He has worked with companies such as Warner Bros. and Disney Feature Animations. Some of his projects have included Disney’s Meet the Robinsons.

John studied classical and contemporary theatre at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon and was an early member of the Tygres Heart Shakespeare Co. in Portland, Oregon. He is a contributor to the pop culture website, The Mung Hour.

John is a resident of Southern California and when not singing, running marathons, or counting down the days until Halloween, is an expert on James Bond movies.

The movement influenced literature, philosophy, language, art, music, politics, science, religion and ideas.

The Renaissance was partly made possible by art patrons. Rulers, nobles and the wealthy often commissioned work from artists, musicians, philosophers, scholars and scientists. In fact, some of the most notable artists who benefited from this support included Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi and Donatello.
