A Novel ViewBook Cover Design for “Moby Dick”by Herman MelvilleMy second book cover design for my “A Novel View” project where I make covers for classic books in the public domain.This one was incredibly fun to play with. I am completely fascinated by this story. Many people think Moby Dick was a symbol of God, a being whose actions can be confusing and can not be completely known.I loved the theme that’s played here with the limitation of human knowledge. Especially back when this was written, the ocean was a mystery, and Melville used this to enhance this theme. I thought I would use bubbles and sea molecules to create a mysterious magic like swirl to touch on the mystery of the ocean.Completely loved doing this! It was super fun, more to come!
