White Whales, Blue Whales. Happy Birthday Moby Dick!

Google Moby Dick doodle
As I learned from Google's homepage doodle, today is the 161st anniversary of the publication of Moby Dick, although October 18, 1851, was the date of its publication in England, where it was titled The Whale.  Herman Melville's most famous work wasn't published in the United States until November 14, when Harper and Brothers of New York City published it as Moby-Dick; or, The Whale.

If you read it in high school, it's time to read it again!

Here at Galison, we celebrate whales with a journal, set of correspondence cards, thank you notes, and gift tags from our Out to Sea Collection.

Illustrator Debbie Powell's whale looks like a sperm whale, as was the famously white whale Moby Dick, although ours is blue and doesn't symbolize anything!
