Moby-Dick : Or, the Whale, Hardback


Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback "Clothbound Classics" series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

In Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick", Captain Ahab is an eerily compelling madman who focuses his distilled hatred and suffering (and that of generations before him) into the pursuit of a creature as vast, dangerous and unknowable as the sea itself.

More than just a novel of adventure, this is a haunting social commentary populated with some of the most enduring characters in literature.

Written with wonderfully redemptive humour, "Moby Dick" is a profound and timeless inquiry into character, faith and the nature of perception.
