A whale of a book

md092_11292009

Illustrator and fine artist Matt Kish has taken up his own Ahabian quest : he is creating one piece of art every day, for every page of Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick (above, page 92, from November, 29) .  Kish uses found paper from various sources, and a large variety of materials, and the result is nearly always great, quite often stunning, and never boring.

I guess you could start an in-depth discussion of the intrinsic narrativity of the juxtaposed pages, or of the dialogue between the art and the original contents of its pages, but I’d rather stick to looking at the pictures.
