1984 by George Orwell, Redacted


Recently Penguin Books issued new editions of books by George Orwell. I have always been a fan of the novel 1984, but when I saw this cover by David Pearson, I had to have it. The title redacted is perfect.

This edition is now out of print, so I had a few sent to me from vintage book dealers. Simply one of the best book covers, ever.

These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.
