Whalemail follows the group of humpback whales that travel between Alaska and Hawaii. A research crew follows the whales’ path sending news of their fictional journey on picture postcards. The postcards pull out of whale tail envelopes. The pages of the book follow the whales in nonfiction text. It’s a fun blend of fact, fiction and fishin’ in full color!
Original linocut artwork from the imagery in Whalemail is available in small editions.
