Publisher Note

Since autumn 2011 Harpune Verlag Vienna publishes Herman Melville's masterpiece about the Great White Whale and his relentless pursuer Captain Ahab as a serial in 137 chapters. To do justice to the book's many voices, each chapter is illustrated by a different artist and each limited edition issue of 460 copies is published in non-chronological order at the rate of one chapter per month. Subscribe for the more than 10 years lasting hunt for all the chapters! Forty copies are published in a special edition produced in collaboration with the artist. Moussa Kone's chapter features the whole whale in one piece drawn over 16 pages.
