Wonderful series of book Nabokov covers from a variety of designers, organized by John Gall (who designed one of my favorite covers, ever).
See the others here.
i admire how the format of the frame/shadowbox and the same typeface for nabokov’s full name unify the diverse compositions of each designer. even though some designs are stronger than others on an individual scale, the strength of the collection stems from each designer’s adherence to the two basic gudielines. My favourite ones are Paul Sahre’s and Marian Bantje’s.
