This Brilliantly Censored Book Cover Does Big Brother Proud

Penguin publishing just re-released five of George Orwell's best works — 1984, Animal Farm, Down and Out in Paris and London, Homage to Catalonia, and Politics and the English Language — as "Great Orwell" editions.

While the classic texts themselves haven't changed, their covers have been re-imagined by David Pearson, an award-winning typographer and designer. For the cover of 1984, he's able to fully captures both the premise and dystopian tone of Orwell's work simply by redacting the title and byline. [Penguin UK via CR Blog
