Currently Loving: F. Scott Fitzgerald Book SetPosted: October 17, 2012
While I was planning my Roaring Twenties party last month, I thought it might be a good idea to read The Great Gatsby. (Yes, it’s true. I’ve never read The Great Gatsby.)
In my online search for the novel, I happened upon a stunning F. Scott Fitzgerald Classics set by Penguin’s premier cover designer, Coralie Bickford-Smith. Each book is designed with distinct art deco patterns on foil jackets.
Of course, I fell in love and unnecessarily bought the entire series (The Great Gatsby, The Beautiful and Damned, The Last Tycoon, Tales of the Jazz Age, Tender is the Night, This Side of Paradise and Flappers and Philosophers: The Collected Short Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald)!
No buyer’s remorse here. They look absolutely gorgeous on my book shelf.
The only problem? They’re too pretty to read! (Yes, it’s true. I’ve still never read The Great Gatsby.)
Tell me, have you purchased this book set? How does it look? Show us pics!
