- Dimensions: 9.5” x 2”
- Herman Melville’s classic whaling epic is reimagined in this gorgeous hardback edition featuring pen and ink illustrations by a young Alex Katz, rendered while the legendary artist attended Cooper Union between 1948-49.
- Katz, who had first read the book at 13 years old, was drawn to its experimental and digressive structure. Moby-Dick “doesn’t really have a beginning, a middle, and an end,” he notes; rather, “it’s a big form.” The artist’s whimsical illustrations capture this quality while expressing the early formation of his now highly recognizable style. Katz later returned to maritime motifs with a series of work based on his trips to Maine that began in the mid-1950s.
- This is a newly printed book, multiples are available.
