Description


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.

Praise For…


"In Herman Melville's bicentennial year, which he shares with Walt Whitman, Chronicle Books has published a new pop-up retelling of his most famous work, Moby-Dick. Alongside striking typography, the rich linocut artworks by French artist Joëlle Jolivet portray ten key chronological moments in shadowbox style. Argentinian paper engineer Gérard Lo Monaco then applied his talents to the mechanical side of things.
Melville completists and pop-up devotees will not want to miss out on what the publisher calls 'an adventure in book craft and storytelling.'"
