UPDATE: Some clarification about the Amazon listing for my book. There will actually be two editions. One is a hardcover (which MAY have a slipcase) which is more expensive and is listed here. The other edition is a lower priced paperback which can be seen here. Sorry for any confusion. This was a very pleasant surprise to me as well!
It's just about official now! My publisher Tin House Books now has my upcoming Moby-Dick art book, titled Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page listed on their web site in their "Coming Soon" section. And, for the first time, everyone can see the cover. This is tremendously exciting. I'll post the cover here on the blog in a little while, but I feel like Tin House ought to have first dibs on sharing that so if you'd like to see it along with the "Coming Soon" announcement, you can check it out right here.
Amazingly enough, it is also already listed for pre-order on Amazon. It's such an incredibly strange feeling to see myself, and my name, listed on Amazon. No cover there yet, but price and a tentative publication date of October 11. I knew Tin House wanted to shoot for either October or November, with the date timed to coincide with the 160th anniversary of the publication of the novel in England (October) or the United States (November) so this seems right. Anyway, you can see that listing right here.
