Beth London on May 17, at am. Lomaev is awesome! The illustrations are drawn in brush and pen and ink, in a densely-crosshatched style deliberately reminiscent of scrimshaw , a craft common on whaling ships of the era, and discussed in the text. My hope has been to work with old-feeling illustration techniques in an unexpected and dramatic way.
Visual research for this project was constant throughout its process, beginning with a visit in to the Charles W. Morgan , the last remaining wooden whaleship, and one almost indistinguishable from the text's descriptions of the Pequod. This edition of Moby-Dick will be pages in length, and 7 by 10 inches.

The book will be hardcover with white lightly-textured fake leather over board, with the title printed in black and debossed on the spine. The covers will be totally blank and white. The edges of the text block will be stained black, and the book will come in a black matte slipcase, with an illustration of the whale on two of its sides. An overall aesthetic of melodramatic light and shadow and traditional techniques used in aggressive, modern ways is meant to inform the illustrations and the design and treatment alike.
In the typesetting of this edition, I've been a little more reverent of the unusual typesetting choices of the first American edition than most modern editions are. The display type is Two Lines English Egyptian , a digital revival by Jonathan Martin of one of the first commercially-available sans serif fonts, chosen for how it works with the illustrations, and how it reflects the same transitional period into modernity and industrialization as does the book itself.

The backing is zinc. The image is an illustration of the Pequod: the art shown above is not final. Wizard of Oz illustrated: The first book I illustrated and self-published was L. The book is published in a hardcover edition with nearly illustrations. Copies gotten through this Kickstarter are at a significant discount.
