Party at Gatsby's

Small 5x7 inch booklet made using an expert from Chapter 3 of The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. 2015.

The cover was designed and hand printed. I used a transfer method with a carbon based photocopy and yellow ink. I decided to use the black and white carbon copy that had been touched with some of the yellow ink as my final cover instead of the intended print. I felt it conveyed a sense of decaying wealth more clearly than a stark yellow on white look.
