Brilliant New Jacket Design For "1984"

A scary and perfect cover for George Orwell’s classic novel.

David Pearson’s Penguin cover features the title and author’s name almost completely obscured by matte black foil. If you’ve read 1984, you’ll get that the concept is referencing the rewriting of history carried out by the Ministry of Truth — where the novel’s hero, Winston Smith, works. Pearson said of the design: “I can’t vouch for its success on Amazon.”

I guess Penguin doesn’t mind looking like the Ministry of Truth here.

Pearson also created new covers for Orwell’s other four books, including Animal Farm. See those designs here. And here’s Pearson’s website.
