Novelty Treats: Lolita Alternate Covers

For the Nabokov obsessed amongst us, I would recommend you check out the flickr gallery of artist created covers for Lolita.  They range from creepy and poorly photoshopped to lovely and graphically intriguing (yes, the Kubrickian heart-shaped glasses make their appearance here and there). For literary geeks, they're good fun.  Personally, I'm waiting for the day this book gets a flashy Penguin Deluxe-esque facelift.  My good old copy is the plain old Vintage International saddle shoe number, and I'm willing to collect more.
