This Brilliantly-Censored Book Cover Does Big Brother Proud

Penguin publishing just rereleased 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 reimagined 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]
