John Bertram and Marco Sonzogni are publishing a book on Lolita covers and asked a slew of cover designers to contribute conceptual covers. Here is mine.

Final cover for this one with two preliminary sketches below. The brief was to convey "typographic man".

I spent the afternoon looking through the Library of Congress's online collection of Civil War photographs. I must have looked at about 1000 before settling on this one. I kept going back though to the photograph of Lincoln's chair that he was sitting in when assassinated.

This was the first sketch I proposed for this cover. A book of the collected prefaces to the novels of Henry James.
