A Tribute to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Classic Book, THE GREAT GATSBY!
August 24th, 2012
Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about the Classic American Novel, THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald. We’re pretty sure it’s because of the newly planned movie coming out later this year but we really love the book so we thought we would do this Tribute. THE GREAT GATSBY was written in 1925 and the story takes place in America during the early 1920′s, a time known as “The Roaring Twenties”. Of course this was before the famous Wall Street Stock Market Crash of 1929 & the Depression that followed. To celebrate the book we have collected a few fun pictures and interesting pieces of history to share. This 1st graphic is a “Parody Cover” giving the book a name that is more about the basic message of the story, ha ha!
Next, here’s a wonderful example of some fine baking artistry, the jacket cover of the book… on a cupcake!
OK, on a serious note, here’s a very cool piece of Literary History. Here’s the original ad for THE GREAT GATSBY Book found in a 1925 issue of Princetonian magazine. It features a drawing of the Author, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Then, speaking of him, here’s a Postcard that he mailed to himself while on Vacation, so that he would remember the event ( ha ha! ). It’s kinda fun to see because it’s an excellent example of his Autograph.
Then, last but not least, is an INFOGRAPHIC showing a Map to the main Characters in the book and how they are all related to each other. If you have not read the book, and plan too, then please avoid looking at it as it might contain spoilers. But for the rest of us who have enjoyed the book it’s pretty funny!
