Herman Melville’s literary classic Moby-Dick is a firm favourite in the canon of Western English Literature. First published in 1851, the novel weaves a tortured tale, through the eyes of a sailor called Ishmael, of Captain Ahab in pursuit of an elusive and destructive sperm whale. It’s a great book. One of my future 30-Day projects will be dedicated to creating 30 cover designs of some of my favourite books. This postcard was intended to get me inspired for that project.
