If You Haven’t Yet Had Time to Read Moby-Dick Here’s a Pop-Up Book


Two hundred years ago, Herman Melville was born and the course of American literary history changed forever. In celebration of the author’s bicentennial, Chronicle Books published Moby-Dick: A Pop-Up Book from the Novel by Herman Melville, which shows ten key moments from the story in shadowbox-style, pop-up detail.

Here are some selections from the book, which features art by Gerard Lo Monaco and illustrations by Joelle Jolivet.
