Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page by Matt Kish
Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page

Susan J. Pizzolato, January 6, 2013

Matt Kish made a promise--to himself and to the online world--to create art about the novel Moby Dick every day for 552 days, one piece for every page of the Signet edition of the book. The result is an inspired, emotional, graphic-style illustration of Kish's response to Melville's work, page by page. You cannot open this book without imagining the effort this took. The excitement upon seeing what he has done, on recycled book pages, hasn't left me. I enjoying flipping it open to any page and starting there. It's a great artistic achievement and adds to the many wonderful works of art inspired by Ahab's mania. The color and quality of the paper is superior. Congratulations to Matt Kish and to Tin House Books!
