Gatsby, then and Now

The New York Times has an interesting article contrasting the original cover art for The Great Gatsby with a new design pitched at the movie remake coming out shortly. The original art is stunning, the new art, not so much. The book has been on my mind as I've worked my way through Man Men. Don Draper is a descendant of James Gatz, the All American boy who strove to remake himself from nothing through the capacity of myth.
