The existent Nabokov-Lolita T-shirts are rather distasteful; I have not
seen the ones Beth mentions but I am surprised The New York Review
of Books never produced the David Levine shirt-bag thing for Nabokov as
they did for Virginia Woolf and several other writers. They probably
think his popularity is not quite high enough to warrant those but I
suspect they may be wrong.

Levine's portrait of Nabokov appeared many times on the pages of the NYRB
and it's obviously vastly superior to the one currently featured on the
other T-shirts.
