That photo is perfect for Gatsby, but the gigantic text nearly ruins it.

Avisannschild: Thanks you! Well spotted! I've added it to the post.

Craig: It's tricky, because it's the standard design for the Penguin Modern Classics series--though the arrangement of the photo, with the gap between the two heads into which the text neatly slots, does help.
