Moby Monday — A Springy Thingie by MegDC

Illustrator Mat Hudson, aka Orphan Elliott, has designed a line of spectacularly bright posters to encourage “the joy and excitement of reading,” he says.

With its sunny backdrop and shattered-glass ocean spray, Hudson’s Moby Dick does seem joyous, despite the whale’s precarious position in front of a darted harpoon. Then again, the harpooneer’s position is plenty precarious too. Is this what narrator Ishmael would call "a joint-stock company of two"?

Margaret Guroff is editor and publisher of Power Moby-Dick.
