(via Covering Lolita: An Online Exhibit by Dieter E. Zimmer)

Over 150 covers of Nabokov’s Lolita. What I find particularly interesting is that some of the colors indicate that, in certain times and places, it was published explicitly as pornography.

Draw your own conclusions on what those times and places imply.
