What a great idea and execution of it. Henry Sene Yee Just breathtaking. All of them are so well thought out and executed.
Bravo to the concept and everyone involved in filling those little specimen boxes with visual delight. Ian shimkoviak Those are fantastic -- it's a brilliant project, and the individual responses are amazing, too. Shawn Vestal Which of the designers actually read the book in question? The Enchanter is sort of a Lolita as it was the story on which Lolita was based.
I love the Pnin cover!! I bet they all did. I had already read Speak, Memory so I was happy that was the cover I was given. There seems to be one glaring omission I would have hated to have been assigned Lolita. Too much pressure. Michael Bierut Deliciously apt.
What a treat for the eyes and the mind. Bravo, John. And don't book jacket designers love to read, hence their vocation? Interesting that Lolita is not included!

The beautifully simple cover art here enacts the same illusion: we think the colored lines mirror each other, but when we look closer we see that the shades are all different VN was always very careful to treat each shade as an independent color.
Moreover, unlike a true mirror, the colors don't meet; instead, we are given a great black void between them, and this is where Herman's "Despair" originates. Beautiful work.
Nice book cover. Very modern design for classic author. I especially like how "Look at the Harlequins! Vanity Feral John these designs are wonderful! This is a very smart assignment. There were no directions or photographs — the work and composition were to be handled by the audience. Norfolk, Conn.
