If the idea of flipping one by one through 500+ art prints depicting every single page of Moby Dick sounds at all appealing to you, then this is certainly the book for you. To me, that sounds incredible, and I'm so glad this boo exists so I can do so.
This is not at all the way I pictured Moby Dick, but it’s the way Matt Kish does. And it was fascinating to get a glimpse into another interpretation. Not that many people have actually read Moby Dick, so it’s not always easy to have a detailed conversation about it. Flipping through this art, noticing the lines of text he pulls off each page and the ones he skips, and studying his interpretation of each scene felt like a conversation (albeit one in which not a lot was expected from me). A fantastic work of art.
