Nabakov's Lolita

For my senior project I decided to create a print piece analyzing and studying the different trends of book cover designs for Nabakov's "Lolita." It has always been one of my favorite novels and I find it very interesting how many book cover designs are blatantly misleading toward the content of the book. There is a huge shift from purely type designed covers to visuals of young women after the release of Kubrick's film in 1962. With the release of Kubrick's adaption came a profound popular culture impact/birth of the "Lolita" archetype within society/popular culture. It was a study into responsibility of designer to consumer. The poster is printed on 24''x36'' newsprint.
