Long Island in 1922: On the magnificent estate of the young millionaire Jay Gatsby, the New York high society amuses itself every evening in search of fun and diversion.

unattainable for him. A longing that becomes an obsession.

Press comments

"Opulence on 272 pages. As decadent as the 1920s were, so lavish is the book's design: with gilt edges, eleven removable extras, e.g. a newspaper, country map or cocktail recipes, and many illustrations. A book for book lovers!"
– BZ, December 30, 2022

"A book, as with The Gatsby, can be so much more than printed text: a lovingly crafted work of art, from the typeface to hand-drawn initials, with inset pages, a wealth of drawings, and a matching decorative cover."
– Rheinische Post

"The poetry of the Golden Twenties."
– Neue Ruhr Zeitung

"Adorned is the classic, whose story takes place 100 years ago, with noble drawings in the style of Art Deco and some extras. A total work of art!"
– Colibri, December 15, 2022

"An art deco book design turns a masterpiece of American modernism into a
special piece of jewelry."
– Kontur, December 2022

"The cover already foreshadows how beautiful it is inside."
– Rheinische Post, August 19, 2022

"With his drawings and many lovingly designed inserts on themes of the 1920s, the illustrator brings a bygone era to life. But the Gatsby reissue is also a tribute to the old
New York. Nippoldt's cityscapes in particular are amazingly detailed - and give you an idea of how much work went into this book."
– WDR 5, October 17, 2023

"A firework of ideas!"
– Westfalenspiegel, December 2022
