Nabokov re-designed


John Gall, Directeur artistique chez Vintage and Anchor Books, a accepté de relever le défi de reinventer les couvertures des quelque 21 romans de Vladimir Nabokov.

John Gall, who works as an Art Director at Vintage and Anchor Books, accepted a very challenging assignment when he was asked to redesign the 21 covers of Vladimir Nabokov̓ s novels.

As Nabokov was a keen butterfly collector, each cover is a specimen box filled using paper and insect pins. Graphic designers such as Chip Kidd, Carol Carson, Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin, Megan Wilson and Duncan Hannah, Rodrigo Corral, Martin Venezky, Charles Wilkin, Helen Yentus and Jason Booher, Peter Mendelsund, Sam Potts, Dave Eggers, Paul Sahre, Stephen Doyle, Carin Goldberg, Michael Bierut, Barbara de Wilde, and Marian Bantjes were invited to express their own feelings about the writer s masterpieces.

    Magnifique! Chaque couverture est un véritable petit bijou. Joli écrin pour les romans de Nabokov. Mes préférées: Pale Fire et Laughter in the dark.
