"In Herman Melville's bicentennial year, which he shares with Walt
Whitman, Chronicle Books has published a new pop-up retelling of
his most famous work, Moby-Dick. Alongside striking typography, the
rich linocut artworks by French artist Joelle Jolivet portray ten
key chronological moments in shadowbox style. Argentinian paper
engineer Gerard Lo Monaco then applied his talents to the
mechanical side of things.
Melville completists and pop-up devotees will not want to miss out on what the publisher calls 'an adventure in book craft and storytelling.'"
