Summer of Darkness app follows Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley, and their companions during the Year Without Summer #ArtTuesday
Fun app that celebrates literature in a historical and geographic context. From Summer of Darkness:
Beginning in May 2016, the story of The Year Without Summer will unfold as a series of notifications appearing on your iPhone or iPad. Notifications will arrive in “real” time concurrent to the dates and times the events actually took place in 1816, from Claire Claremont’s romantic pursuit of Lord Byron to Percy Bysshe Shelley’s writing of Mont Blanc to the famous night when Mary Shelley had a vision of Frankenstein’s monster in response to a ghost story writing challenge issued by Lord Byron.
