Penguin Books 2013

The Sanguine Gatsby

In this international edition—published in 2013 to capitalize on the Leonardo DiCaprio film released the same year—Gatsby’s Rolls-Royce tools across an Art Deco pattern, foregrounding the book’s title and author in an elegant plume of exhaust. (Or is it speeding from a growing slick of blood?)


An evocative but ambiguous illustration that hints at the complexity of the novel and its protagonist.
