About this book

The Whale's Companion seeks to capture the idea of the whale in the human imagination through a collection of evocative writings and images from ancient times up to the present day. Ranging across the cultures of the world for its material, this superbly produced visual and literary anthology explores the complexity of humankind's relationship with the whale: the awe-inspiring creature that fills our myths and legends, art and literature, with its mystical, sometimes fearsome, often tragic, presence.
