In time for the 200th anniversary of author Herman Melville’s birth, this graphically arresting, beautifully rendered pop-up retelling of Moby-Dick is a wonder to behold.
Rich linocut artworks portray ten key chronological moments from the story in shadowbox-style pop-ups that reward time spent poring over the details and offer fresh perspectives on the classic. Each spread is accompanied by select quotations from the book, while brief page notes provide additional context for the depicted plot moments.
With striking typography presented in an authentic broadsheet style, here is an adventure in book craft and storytelling.
