Lo Lee Ta

I looove this cover designed by Jamie Keenan for my favorite novel of all time: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. This brilliant and subtle double entendre-d image, along with 60 other redesigns, was part of a cover competition organized by John Bertram that will soon be compiled for a book titled Recovering Lolita. Co-edited by Yuri Leving, the book also includes essays on historical cover treatments, and is due out in June.

Visit imprint to see some of the other designs, as well as this awesome online trove of past Lolita covers.
