Moby Dick Filet is our longest running and most exciting publishing experiment – We cut the famous novel about Captain Ahab’s hunt for the white whale into its 137 chapters and publish them chapter by chapter as a kind of dime novel, but not chronologically. The artist chooses a chapter to work on and the only requirement is that Herman Melville’s text appears in some form and remains legible. The chapters are published unbound – so that when the project is finished they can be bound as a multi volume book and the Great White Whale is whole again!


»Moby Dick Filet« is an ongoing artist-book edition of Herman Melville‘s magnificent novel »Moby Dick« in the original English version. In order to do the illustration of this many-voiced book justice, each chapter is illustrated by a different artist and is published achronologically in a limited edition of 460 copies.

12 – 24 pages
14.5 x 19.9 cm / 5.83 x 7.83 in. offset print
