The release of Baz Luhrman’s bastardized film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s masterpiece The Great Gatsby this year stirred renewed interest in the iconic Jazz Age author’s novels. And, of course, we saw a number of new print editions of Fitzgerald’s books, including some neglected titles.
So, I was chuffed to run across these new Orion editions with brilliantly reimagined covers by artist, illustrator and designer Sinem Erkas . Her marvelous Deco-referenced typographic covers manage to avoid the often mawkish and clichéd versions we’ve seen all too much of this year.
