Additional notes: Innovative design with a right and left spine but common back cover, folded towards the middle, the former stitch bound and the latter Japanese stab bound. The title flows across both closed covers. The box is contained in a blue box which is larger than the book which fits on top of the space beneath, making it more substantial.
Each side of the book ends with a seven-page map, being a leporello, before the colophon, in English and Russian, on the final page.
A research based visual exploration of Vladimir Nabokov's parallel passions and moves as a writer and a lepidopterist, referring to his ground breaking evolutionary theory.
