The Fox is Black has started a series of competitions prompting its readers to create inventive new covers to established literary classics. The first competition is to re-design the cover of F. Scott Fitzgerald's American jazz age novel, The Great Gatsby. Bobby Solomon, who launched the competition, writes: 'The first book we’ll be re-covering is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I wanted to start with an American classic that was well regarded by many and I feel like The Great Gatsby has a lot of rich imagery that will translate well to a cover.'
