New Limited Edition – Herman Melville's Moby-Dick

with the classic illustrations by Rockwell Kent

‘I think that the book which I put down with the unqualified thought “I wish I had written that” is Moby Dick.’

William Faulkner

An exhibition of the work of Rockwell Kent is currently on display at the New York State museum in Albany, New York. Famous not only for his magnificent illustrations for Moby-Dick, Kent was a man of many talents – engraver, painter, graphic artist, architect, builder, writer, lecturer – as well as a committed political activist and a world traveller. This exhibition, now extended until July, features a wide range of materials from his life and work. Click here to read more about Rockwell Kent and the exhibition.
