Here, for instance, is his illustration for page 550, which includes the quote:
"Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee. Sink all coffins and all hearses to one common pool! and since neither can be mine, let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, though tied to thee, thou damned whale! Thus, I give up the spear!"
I think I have a contender for my next tattoo...
As you may or may not know, Moby Dick is also my favorite book. I could imagine myself, in another life, undertaking a task such as this. What books would you like to illustrate if you had the time and talent?
