Moby Dick is the book you keep pretending to have read, but would actually benefit from reading. One part allegory, two parts sea-faring adventure, and three parts allegory again, this haunting, mesmerizing, and enthralling tale puts you up close with the consequences of obsession, and an encyclopedic understanding of whaling lore and legend. This edition is part of Penguin’s Clothbound Classics series, designed by award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith and bound in high-quality, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.
