Set of 3 Swedish Dishcloths: Lobster, Oysters & Whale
Hand drawn illustrations by Sandra Venus: Maine Lobster, New England Oysters and Moby Dick, the White Whale.
This lobster design is inspired by the classic summertime favorite- Lobster Bakes: Lobsters, steamers, corn & potatoes are grilled over seaweed out on the beach.
Moby Dick, the White Whale.
The doomed Pequod. (That’s the whaling ship being sunk by Moby Dick.)
Moby Dick is one of my favorite books. It's an adventure story that takes some patience getting into, but once you get past the first hundred pages (yes it does take a while to get into it!) anyway, once you get into it, it's hard to put down. I love a good sea adventure. Maybe because I get seasick and would never go on a sea adventure myself, so it's especially fun to read about them.
Nantucket, Massachusetts was the whaling capital of the world at one point. The story of Moby Dick is based on the true story of the whaling ship Essex that was from Nantucket. The Essex was sunk by a sperm whale in 1820. Most of the crew died but some lived to tell the story.
My design is inspired by both the true story and Herman Melville's account of the story in Moby Dick.
Now go ahead, get the book from your library and give it a read. It's the perfect book for escaping into another world.
