Pale Fire book cover design | Stephen Doyle
In 2009 Vintage decided to "re-cover" their Vladimir Nabokov backlist; 21 designers were approached for the project and were asked to design the cover using the theme of a specimen box, since Nabokov was an avid butterfly collector (seriously, read his memoir "Speak, Memory" it's great…and full of butterfly chasing). The results are, I think, astonishingly gorgeous. Cover design: Stephen Doyle (http://www.doylepartners.com/)
