gilding gatsby

August 23, 2010

I’ve been consumed with product packaging design lately, thanks to a huge project that I hope to be able to post about soon. Till then, feast your eyes on these beautifully redesigned book covers for Penguin’s F. Scott Fitzgerald novels. I love that the gilded designs so perfectly embody the author’s jazz-age writings without going overboard.

They were designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith, whose portfolio is so beautiful it gives me goosebumps (and major envy issues).

More of her amazing designs here.
