New Nabokov Specimen Covers

Over at Design Observer you can see the new line of Nabokov book covers curated by John Gall. If you canít tell from the size of these images, the covers are all photographs of specimen boxes (the kind butterfly collectors like Nabokov pin insects in). Fantastic cover concept and well executed by the likes of Chip Kidd, Dave Eggers, Barbara de Wilde and others.
 
You can view a slideshow of eighteen of them. Oddly, Lolita is missing from the slideshow, but surely it will be in the final line.
