I really like the one he did with Dave Eggers for “Laughter in the Dark”:

And “Pnin” and “The Luzhin Defense” and “Bend Sinister”:

Ok, I going to stop before I post all the covers. The only one I don’t like is “Look at the Harlequins!”

I wish these would have been released in hardcover for Christmas gifts.

Wow, those are very beautiful. And they’re all done in a way that recalls Nabokov’s interest in lepidoptery, which is appropriate as well as attractive.

Very cool. You realized you just nerded out on book covers right? :slight_smile:
