Black Dog & Leventhal 2021

The Dollhouse Gatsby

British illustrator Adam Simpson drew both the cover art and illustrations for this edition.


The cover is an artful parfait of flowers, coupes, fountains, dancers, fireworks, mansions, and skyscrapers topped by the famous green light.


Like many covers, it’s all glamour and no tragedy, which is disappointing given that the illustrations so spectacularly capture that same tension.
