MOBY-DICK, Page 298

Title: ...when seamen fall overboard, they are sometimes found, months afterwards, perpendicularly frozen into the hearts of fields of ice, as a fly is found glued in amber.

  1. Thank you Hannah. I've mentioned this before, but I find it very strange and a bit unsettling that I am sensing some mirroring in these illustrations for the second half of the book. Not in such a way that I feel I am being unoriginal or imitating myself, but that somehow echoes of those earlier pieces are reverberating through these later ones. This is similar in some ways to the illustration for page 187 which I kind of like. But still, it's strange to me somehow.
