Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition puts a new, interactive twist on the classic 1897 novel written by Bram Stoker. Featuring more than 600 illustrations and almost 300 pages of carefully abridged text, this reader-driven experience brings the Dracula story to life in a rich, interactive way. From lighting up the words on a page with a lantern, unsealing the mysteries of letters and journal entries, blowing the leaves off of tombstones to reveal the writing beneath, and even using your own “blood” to reveal hidden text on a page, you are intimately immersed in the storytelling.
As you read you can uncover images, audio and film from the earliest days of the Dracula legacy, some never before released to the public. An original musical score, plus 21 songs from indie rock performers Adaline, Christa Couture, Emily Spiller, Eve and the Ocean, and Phoebe Sharp set the tone in each chapter of the book and enhances the immersive experience. This is the only book of its kind to be officially endorsed by the Stoker Family Estate.
