Great Gatsby cover design collection

I retweeted this link, but I thought I'd put it on here, too.

Fitzgerald scholar and biographer, Matthew Bruccoli, collected covers of The Great Gatsby. His collection is on display at the University of South Carolina.

Which do you have? Which is your favourite?

  1. I don't think I have a single copy *ducks*...

    1. My dog-eared copy, which I reread at least once a year, is the grey and green "student's copy", third one on the second row.

      The only other one I've seen until this link was the blue copy with the woman's face in the sky. I really like the latter and "de grote Gatsby", with the illustration of the car and a smaller man under the title.

      I'd love to have this collection!

      Uh, you mean, it's not your favourite book, too? ;-)
