Editorial Reviews

Review

"The sexualized vision of Lolita perpetuated by popular culture has very little to do with the text of Nabokov's novel, in which Lolita is not a teen-aged seductress but a sexually abused twelve-year-old girl. Lolita--The Story of a Cover Girl: Vladimir Nabokov's Novel in Art and Design challenges this prevailing misrepresentation with essays by book designers, artists, and Nabokov scholars, and a preface by Mary Gaitskill that considers the problem of capturing Nabokov's psychologically complex story in a single image. The book's centerpiece is the Lolita Book Cover Project, for which the co-editor John Bertram, an architect based in Los Angeles, commissioned designers to create new covers for the book." --The New Yorker

"Gorgeous" --BuzzFeed

"Stunning" --The Huffington Post

"The book presents the most exhaustive and dimensional topography of Lolita's cultural landscape examined through the lens of design and visual communication.... Lolita: The Story of a Cover Girl is a rare gem at the intersection of lust for literature and lust for design." --Maria Popova, Brain Pickings
