Vintage 'Lolita' Covers from Around the World

Earlier today our friends at Coudal Partners directed us to Covering Lolita, an online collection of cover design for the classic novel that spans 33 countries and over 50 years. Click through to view some of our favorite retro takes on Lolita (all of which are notably more fun to look at than the book’s rather austere first edition), and listen to Nabakov weigh in on the look of a few of the foreign editions himself in this old public TV interview.

1957 – Sweden.
