One day in 2009, Matt Kish, a librarian and artist in Ohio, was inspired by his undying love for a big book about a man and a whale. Kish decided to draw an illustration for every page of the Signet Classics edition of—you guessed it—Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. Two years and 552 pages later, Kish’s project is complete. Using common materials and found pages, Kish deliberately employed a low-tech style in response to the increasing amount of digitally produced book art. A quote from each page of Moby-Dick is Kish’s inspiration, and the result—seen in a few promotional postcards and a simple BLAD (Book Layout and Design, a sort of six-to-twelve-page mini-ARC) before I finally got my hands on the gorgeous final product—is beautiful, fun, and inspiring. Kish began his Moby-Dick drawings as an art project for his modest blog; now his artistic interpretation of Melville’s masterpiece is available to one and all.
