New Illustrated Moby-Dick
Illustrator and cartoonist Evan Dahm has finished a large series of illustrations for Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, and is publishing an illustrated hardcover of the entire text, currently on Kickstarter ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evandahm/moby-dick-illustrated ).
The illustrations are ink drawings in a style reminiscent of scrimshaw, and the text is typeset with careful reference to the first American edition of the book. For the past two years, Dahm has published his process online at http://mobydickillustrated.tumblr.com/
