MOBY-DICK, Page 336

Title: For you see no one point precisely; not one distinct feature is revealed; no nose, eyes, ears, or mouth; no face; he has none, proper; nothing but that one broad firmament of a forehead, pleated with riddles; dumbly lowering with the doom of boats, and ships, and men.

  1. I stop by regularly to view your project, thought I would actually leave a comment today to say - this is an incredible endeavour and it has been great to watch; can't wait to see it through to the end. Moby Dick was a beast of a book to read, but it was brilliant and so is your project. Keep up the great work!

  2. Hello Roof Beam Reader, and many sincere and heartfelt thanks both for the comment and especially for the regular visits. It's been a strange thing, but over the last year I've come to accept and enjoy that what started as an intensely personal and internal exploration of "Moby-Dick" has become a visual journey that I am now sharing with many other people, friends and strangers. At times it is a little frightening, and I would be lying if I did not admit that occasionally I find myself hoping that visitors will especially like a certain image. For the most part though, I've been able to stay focused, continue working hard, and focus on my own personal vision. It remains a pleasure and an honor to share it with all of you.
