  • Anybody else end up moving around their chair, bed, sofa or floor like this? I swear I always end up in weird poses while reading.

Terrifying Covers for Lolita

Artists Max Temesu & Linn Olofsdotter each produced covers (shown above) truly befitting of Nabokov’s Lolita. Their illustrations are to remind readers that Lolita was never about a protagonist in love, but a man inappropriately obsessed with a young girl. Lolita was being relentlessly pursued throughout this entire novel; love wasn’t in the equation when Vladimir Nabokov penned this book. Vanity Fair’s Gregor von Rezzor says it best,

 “Lolita is not about love, because love is always mutual; Lolita is about obsession, which is never, ever love, and Nabokov himself was so disappointed that people did not understand this and take away the right message… For how could anyone call this feeding frenzy of selfishness, devouring, and destruction ‘love’?“
