The inscribed date on the title page of Alfred A Knopf's edition of TOoL, whose gradually fading images repeat the pattern of Chipp Kid's design, is 2008. The copyright indicates 2009 and all the debates I've been following about the pub lication of VN's index cards have been taking place in 2009. Does anyone know what this "2008" means?
(what I'm considering as a title page is the one which is preceded by Nabokov in a dotted line square.)
