The Luxury Gatsby

Wrapped in a “shimmering die-cut sculpturally embossed slipcase,” this “illuminated” edition includes more than 50 illustrations by an Italian design duo known as The Balbusso Twins. And it can yours for a mere $95.


The reflected green light and sad-eyed flapper hit the right notes.


While it would be a fine effort for a cheap paperback, I’m not sure it lives up to the price. And conceptually, how different is it from this lackluster effort?
