A Look Inside!

Posted in book porn by Lauren Leto on December 8, 2009

Previously, I bemoaned my inability to open this book: laurenleto.wordpress.com/2009/11/17/nabokov-making-me-mad/ however an article that I found through the magic of Twitter is giving me the “inside” (groan) details.

And it looks awesome!

Quote from article:

“Of course, because the cards can be punched out and re-arranged at the whim of the reader, there are Nabokov completists who will want (or need) to buy two copies of ‘The Original of Laura.'”

Yes, I need two, please.

Wonderful! Nabokov would be proud (after he got over being raging mad that this got published). Hurrah to Chip Kidd.
