7 of the world's most iconic book covers

The Great Gatsby

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Cover Artist: Francis Cugat

A relatively unknown artist at the time, Francis Cugat was commissioned to design the cover of The Great Gatsby whilst Fitzgerald was still working on the novel. The now iconic “celestial eyes” appeared on the book’s first printing in 1925; when Fitzgerald saw the design (before completing the book), it is said that he liked it so much that he had “written it in” to the final story.
