The Lolita cover was inspired by Nabokov's playful, witty and moody writing. The author manages to present very complex ideas and emotions with great clarity and I wanted to do the same with this simple book cover. The letters were cut from construction paper to play off Lolita's innocence and the ample white space creates the feeling of isolation.
