The 3D Gatsby

This eye-popping cover was designed by Mario De Meyer, a Belgian graphic designer who specializes in typographic art. The front flap opens to reveal an illustration of Daisy’s famous green light, and the back cover includes a martini, a spilled glass of Champagne, and yet another GG insignia.


The cover is inarguably striking.


The cover also suggests a circuit board and the movie TRON. Does the illustration serve the novel, or simply itself?
