"He piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart's shell upon it."
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 ^^
"To the last, I grapple with thee; from hell's heart, I stab at thee; for hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee." --- "...So, she looks over to her husband, then sets it back down in her lap and says, 'Honey, this one's eating my popcorn.'"- Agent K ("Men in Black", 1997)
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.
