Pop Goes the Whale

I am a fan of pop-up books.  This Moby-Dick one created by Sam Ita is amazing.

Moby-Dick: a pop-up book

Since not everyone is finished reading The Whale, I’ll just share a page or two.

It’s the Pequod!  With rigging!  See the flap on the left?  You can lift it for another pop-up.  That hand in the lower right?  It’s Queequeg’s; when you open it, he’s holding yojo.

In just twelve pages Sam Ita has boiled down the blubber of Moby-Dick and given us the best of the story.
