please judge this book by its cover

i've seen these lovelies a few places around the interwebs. i feel compelled to share a new skin for my favorite novel...the great gatsby. yes, favorite. ever!

the classic cover is well, classic, but the new cover redesigned by coralie-bickford smith is so elegant. beautifully updated, very true to the art deco period. i think my second favorite is the cover for this side of paradise, which is i think my second-favorite fitzgerald novel. i like chevrons.

she's done some fun covers for other classics, too. check out her work.
