Description
Herman Melville's audacious epic Moby-Dick has found an illustrator equal to its mercurial text in Robert Del Tredici, a California native with a degree in comparative literature, who taught drawing, photography, and film in Montreal before becoming America's foremost documentary photographer of the U.S nuclear weapons complex. In Floodgates of the Wonderworld he returns to his roots with a series of 59 silkscreen prints, incorporating excerpts from the visionary text by Melville that has captivated him for most of his life. Melville scholars Elizabeth Schultz, Robert Wallace, and Jill Gidmark discuss the influence of Del Tredici's images on students and scholars, the relationship of his work to other Moby-Dick illustrators, and the technical and aesthetic aspects of the silkscreen process.
