Tales of the Jazz Age

If you were taking a tour through the Jazz Age, there’s no better place to start than F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Held, Jr.

Fitzgerald’s literary works, from the Beautiful and the Damned to the Great Gatsby, captured the spirit of the age and Held’s illustrations for Life Magazine put it on display with a playful glamorous humor.

Their collaboration on the cover of Fitzgerald’s Tales of the Jazz Age seems not only appropriate, but somehow destined.
