This is the shiny, sparkly 3D version. Scroll down for the original.

This handwritten first page of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gastby has been making the rounds recently, and with the classic novel coming back to the big screen in a 3D adaptation by Baz Luhrmann (some fear "It might be too Baz Luhrmanny"), it's nice to look back at where it all began. When Fitzgerald sat down to pen this page, giant novelty-sized bottles of Moët only existed in booze-soaked dreams. Anyway, why hasn't anyone created a "Great Gatsby" font off of this yet?
