Marian Bantjes did the cover for Transparent Things. She explains: “I used the pins to suspend 4 layers  of acetate, with dots of transparent ink on each later.”
The full show of covers and description can be seen at the link: John Gall: The Nabokov Collection: “The  assignment [of this show]: redesign Vladimir Nabokov’s book covers, all  twenty-one of them. The solution: twenty-one specimen boxes, the kind  used by butterfly collectors like Nabokov, each created by a different  designer.”
