The Foiled Fitzgeralds
This collection of F Scott Fitzgerald’s works was designed for Penguin by the brilliant Coralie Bickford-Smith to mark the anniversary of Fitzgerald’s death. Coralie designed the delightful Art Deco cover patterns to evoke the elegance and glamour of the jazz age depicted in the stories, with the “sense of ornate detail fused with the modernist aesthetic of mechanical repetition”.
The combination of metallic foil and matt paper feels good in the hand and looks stunning on the shelf. Each book includes a matching bookmark with quote that can be detached from the dust jacket.
