Illustrated by Rockwell Kent
A new Folio collector’s edition of Herman Melville’s evergreen classic, Moby-Dick, featuring Rockwell Kent’s original illustrations and bound in rich cloth.
‘I think that the book which I put down with the unqualified thought “I wish I had written that” is Moby-Dick.’
- William Faulkner
Following the huge success of our 2009 limited edition, Folio has reproduced Moby-Dick in a new collector’s edition. Featuring Rockwell Kent’s illustrations and bound in rich cloth, this is a fine presentation of what is regarded by many as the greatest American novel.
Herman Melville’s tale of the hunt for the white whale, Moby-Dick, is a sublime work of the imagination, an American Odyssey. It is at once an adventure story of the high seas, and an exploration of the uncharted regions of the soul.
