F. Scott Fitzgerald

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Book Front Covers / 2011

To mark the 70th anniversary of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s death, Penguin Classics planned to publish hardback editions of six titles. The patterns evoke the jazz age of Fitzgerald’s stories, giving these books the elegance and glamour of the Art Deco period: the sense of ornate detail fused with the modernist aesthetic of mechanical repetition. The combination of metallic foil and matt paper gives a tactile enhancement to the reading experience. The type panel fits with the deco theme and is echoed on the detachable bookmarks.
