Subway Frankenstein

If you are a book reader, you never travel alone. That’s the message from Bookish, a promotional website launched in February 2013. Here, a reader shares a subway ride with Scarlett O’Hara, Sherlock Holmes and Frankenstein’s Monster. The art — artist unfortunately unidentified — was featured last year in one of a series of subway ads in New York. Tag line read, “Give your ride more character”.

And BELIEVE me, a subway ride is sometimes like that! (Great art - very '30s.)
