Designed by Jon Sueda / Stripe, the 136-page exhibition catalog is designed as a homage to the classic 1930 Random House edition of Moby-Dick, with its illustrations by Rockwell Kent, this investigation of present-day America through the lens of Herman Melville's great novel convenes artists and filmmakers who have made works relating to its themes of seafaring and the pitting of humankind against the elements. The book also boasts a foil-stamped clothbound cover, a fold-out map, essays by Jens Hoffmann and Alexander Nemerov, and full-color illustrations.
