Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Word on the street is that this is going to sell out FAST – each book is a work of art, seriously, for serious – so if this is your bag, get pre-ordering, my loves… here in the US and here in the UK and as soon as The Book Depository sorts itself out and lists it, I’ll let you know…
