Remarkable Observations
by Mill Hill Press.
Design, production,
and print buying by Cecile Kaufman.

The cover of this book was inspired by the wonderful eighteenth-century handwriting of Peleg Folger. I modified two typefaces and enlarged and redrew some of his scrawls.
In 1751, at the age of seventeen, Peleg Folger began to keep a journal at sea. It was his job to keep the log of the whaling ship he sailed on. This book is a transcript of the logs that he kept between 1751 and 1754, juxtaposed with photographs of the actual manuscript — photographs taken by Jeff Allen. The text is edited by Thomas Philbrick with a foreword by Nathaniel Philbrick.
