Studying the art of Lolita


We love books about books. Lolita – The Story of a Cover Girl: Vladimir Nabokov’s Novel in Art and Design is a book about a book’s artwork. The question behind the book is what should Lolita look like? The question that has challenged cover designers since 1955 when Lolita appeared in a plain green wrapper. Eighty graphic designers and illustrators offer their own takes on the book’s jacket, while other folks cast their critical eyes over dozens of Lolita covers.
