Nabakov Design

by Charlotte Reads Classics


Oh, Penguin Books, you’ve done it again. No one releases beautiful covers like these! Also: Pentagram, you’ve done it again. Something different, beautiful, and works wonderfully with the author.

The prolific design firm has released several new book covers for the author Vladimir Nabokov. All seven covers features an illustration that plays around the typical neutral-box-in-the-center, mingling and overlapping the label. Each cover also has a small intrepretation of a game featured in the book, like chess or crosswords. Yes, Pentagram, it works really well with the “playful and satirical” points of Nabokov’s writing, just as you stated.
