This Fine Edition from The Folio Society is the first to include illustrations. Chilean-born artist Federico Infante has created nine beautiful yet unsettling paintings; each of their subjects appear as pale, crumbling murals, the paint of the landscape peeling away around them.[ ] The binding features a leather label inset embossed with the phonetic sounding of the book’s title, so relished by Humbert in the novel’s infamous opening paragraph.
