BAD NABOKOV BOOK COVER #3
Nabokolia is proud to present the third book in our series of ‘Bad Nabokov Book Covers’.
Are you a voyeur? Put away your binoculars and pick up this book. Are you uncomfortable? Are we making the people around you uncomfortable? We are…good. Do you like literature? Do you like reading? Do you want to give the impression that you’re a dirty old man? It doesn’t matter that you might be a female or maybe a student of serious literature, we wanted to lump all of you together into one dirty-minded demographic. We hope you enjoy your porn. What? Why are you angry with us? We heard about this book and we found this photo in an old playboy and we thought, this works. What would you have us do as publishers? I mean really.
BAD NABOKOV BOOK COVER #2
Nabokolia is proud to present the second book in our new series of ‘Bad Nabokov Book Covers’.
Either I’m crunk on some bad absinthe, or there’s an eyeball peeking over the barrel of a pistol, buried in a bunch of lily of the valley, all of it bursting out of a book like a mutated fetus with a full set of teeth and a massive erection.
Unlike the shallow and lazily repulsive Lolita cover, this cover is the kind of weird that only comes from a person pouring massive amounts of creative juice through their sugar cube before lighting the thing on fire. That’s right. Someone passionately - if talentlessly - concocted this image.
It’s both anvil-drop literal and abstract at the same time. It has a staring problem. It’s awful, but I sort of love it, both ironically and un-ironically.
Bottom line: I would definitely pay three quid for this moaning dreadful.
