DESIGN FINDS

TODAY IN DESIGN → 1958

Vladimir Nabokov's controversial novel "Lolita" was published in the United States.

Its content and themes sparked debates, and its cover designs over the years have become iconic, sparking discussions on visual representation and ethics in design.

When "Lolita" was first published, the cover was rather innocuous, aiming not to draw undue attention to the novel's controversial content. This was a strategic design decision to navigate the sensibilities of the 1950s readership.
