Captain Ahab’s ship, the Pequod, is pictured in this breezy but slightly surreal illustration for Herman Melville’s classic novel, Moby-Dick. We may just discern the silhouetted figure of tormented Captain Ahab himself on the deck of this battered old whaling ship watching the gulls wheel across the sky.
