have you seen this cover???
Doing a little research on Melville I came across a NYT Sunday Review article featuring different covers of Moby Dick. I copied this photo from Flavorwire (courtesy of the collection of Bill Pettit), and the photo credit in the NYT article goes to Nathaniel Brooks of the NYT. Bill Pettit collects editions of Moby Dick from all over the world and my eye was caught by this one.
I'm seriously not sure what the high school (college?) basketball star has to do with Moby Dick but I LOVE this cover.
