Penguin reissues George Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm with Shepard Fairey sleeves

Orwell1

There’s absolutely no excuse for failing to own George Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm. But if you need further encouragement, maybe these Shepard Fairey-designed sleeves will provide it.

We have featured the striking Shepard Fairey (aka Obey) artwork over at Switched On Set – striking retro-styled art that certainly fits Orwell’s politically-inspired classic. Penguin hopes the new covers will give the books a new lease of life – and get them into the hands of today’s book-shy youth.

Both are available from July 3rd, no prices as yet. The cover of Animal Farm can be seen over the page.
