Something Shiny for thursday

Adore these F-Scott Fitzgerald book jackets by senior cover designer at Penguin Books Coralie Bickford-Smith found via 100 Layer Cake. Adds a new flourish to one of my favourite books-The Great Gatsby, I can't wait to get a copy or maybe the whole set.

oh no I want them all and I'm trying to be thrifty. Is it too soon to start a Christmas wish list?!

Aren't they gorgeous? The Great Gatsby is one of my faves too, and these books are too beautiful to stack away in a bookcase.
