Highly Recommended. The Italian illustrators known as the Balbusso Twins are taking on F.

Their illustrations bring us into Gatsby’s world — but they also bring Gatsby into ours. Featuring an introduction by Nathan Robinson.

The illustrators are two young women who have a highly stylized, exacting look to their pictures which is very appealing. They’ve been short-listed as the finest 20th century artists by the Norman Rockwell Museum and the Society of Illustrators. Anna and Elena Balbusso’s work has been published by major international publishers and companies through out the world. Together they have illustrated over 40 books including the award-winning Folio Society edition of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

They received more than 80 international awards, including three Gold medals, a Silver medal (2020) and the Stevan Dohanos Award of the New York Society of Illustrators (SI), two Joseph Morgan Henninger Awards (best of show) and a Silver of the SILA Los Angeles, The Chesley Award by by the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists (ASFA), the Victoria and Albert Museum Illustration Awards Best Book UK and many other honors.
