[A]uthor Philip Hoare and artist Angela Cockayne have put together Moby-Dick Big Read, an incredible and ambitious project to bring Melville’s novel to the masses. For the project, famous figures like Tilda Swinton, John Waters, China Miéville, Benedict Cumberbatch and even UK Prime Minister David Cameron will read sections of the novel aloud to be posted online, creating a delightfully patchwork audiobook. The project will post one new chapter per day — so welcome to your new morning ritual for the next 135 days — along with complementary artwork from a variety of contemporary artists.
