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.  

In a book that has only existed as an artist book of fifteen copies 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 work of art that should be read by anyone interested in the origins of these two great artists. This is exclusively available as an enhanced ebook for iPad and features an introduction by Margaret Atwood, a video interview with the artist, and audio of Margaret Atwood reading the poems.

I used to like Atwood. This new author writes so much better:

I enjoyed reading this introduction as an object lesson in writing and editing. Although I am in two minds about the bracketed simile's? Thank you!

@Raffles The answer is no. Margaret has cited her reasons for supporting Wattpad in this article here:

A collaboration between a writer and an artist is always fun!  I
                              remember that Margaret did her own covers for some time and has her own artistic sensibility.  What is it like to look back at work from your much younger self? I imagine if you took on this project now, it would read much differently.

Does Margaret Atwood own shares in the company? She seems to get more wattpad publicity than anyone.....
