In 1966, before they were international sensations, Margaret Atwood and Charles Pachter teamed up to create Speeches for Doctor Frankenstein — now a unique piece of cultural history and available for the first time as an enhanced eBook for iPad.
In this imaginative work, only existing as an artist book of fifteen copies until recently, Charles Pachter set the poetry of Margaret Atwood to his beautiful and whimsical artwork. Produced originally on handmade paper made with materials found around his house, this is a rare piece of art that should be read by anyone interested in the origins of these two great artists. This work is now exclusively available for the iPad as an enhanced eBook, and features an introduction by Margaret Atwood, video interviews with Charles Pachter, and an audio narration of Margaret Atwood reading the poems.
When you load this enhanced eBook in iBooks, you will find a speaker icon in the info bar at the top of the screen, which is where you can access the enhanced features of this eBook. For the optimal reading experience, turn on these features by tapping on the speaker, turning on the soundtrack, setting pages to turn automatically and tap "Start Reading." For a more traditional reading experience, turn these elements off and change the settings to turn the pages manually.
This enhanced eBook contains high-resolution images and embedded audio and video. Depending on the speed of your internet connection this book may take up to 25 minutes to download. Rest assured, it is worth the wait!
