Call Me Illustrated: Matt Kish's Moby Dick in Pictures

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Matt Kish has read all 500-something pages of Herman Melville's Moby Dick, but his own copy now has a few added illustrations. 


 The Ohio artist and former high school English teacher set out on a mission to create a piece of artwork on every page, a project (and book) he now calls Moby Dick in Pictures.

"Friends often question my obsession with the novel," he writes. "Especially since I am not a scholar or even an educator any longer, and the best explanation I have been able to come up with is that, to me, Moby-Dick is a book about everything." 


 Kish's book, released last month by Tin House Books, includes his work, accompanied by the passages they illustrate. 

See more images below, which you can buy individually on his Etsy page. Read more about his project here and grab a copy locally at Changing Hands.
