An amazing cover. The captain in pursuit of the whale stands confident midst powerful waves. Impressive :D

I don't know about you, but I find this fantabulous.
The styles, the extra decoration in patterns and how you designed Ahab.
And because it's Moby Dick, and you did the book proud.
I think it's really great ^^

love this picture, and especially that you used imagery from those old world maps where they also depicted seamonsters and stuff.
I wish I could buy an edition of Moby Dick with this cover :) It's my favorite book, too.
