Dracula author gets a suitably gothic sketch

Google has posted up another of its famous doodles, this one in celebration of the 165th anniversary of Bram Stoker.

Stoker was of course most famous for his creation Dracula, a novel written in epistolary form, in other words as a series of letters and diary entries of the various characters.

If it was written today, it would be all tweets and status updates…

Aside from the Count himself, Stoker did of course write other novels. These included The Mystery of the Sea, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Lair of the White Worm (it’s only surprising Dracula wasn’t called The Count in the Castle).

Google’s doodle itself, as you might expect, is gothic in theme and drawn in red and black. And it’s Dracula themed, of course, with the Count being the primary element – and other characters from the book such as Harker and Van Helsing are there, of course.
