To celebrate properly, what you need is this fancy anniversary edition, with illustrations by David Plunkert.
The entire book is all here, with brilliantly moody art. The colors are dull and beige, which evokes the dread that encompasses the whole story. Many of the pieces look like haphazard assemblies of patchwork, which is totally appropriate, because, you know, Frankenstein.
Even if you own a dozen other copies of the story, the art makes this edition worth your purchase.
Besides, without this story, there would be no Young Frankenstein movie, and that is a dreadful happenstance that I cannot imagine.
