After a week of digital book news, it’s time to look at some good old fashioned print book covers. Over at Vintage International, artist John Gall was hired to create new covers for the Vladimir Nabokov backlist.
To celebrate the event, the Vintage site is sponsoring a small contest. Readers can pick a favorite cover and explain why in the comments section. The winner takes home a copy of their favorite book.
Here’s more from the site: “As an homage to the author’s love for collecting butterflies, each cover was created using pins, paper, and butterfly boxes. Below, see them in all their glory. Click through for larger images. And just for fun, tell us which is your favorite! Then leave a comment with your reasons why–the most original argument will win a copy of the book they’ve chosen.”
