George Orwell - 1984

Penguin Books is releasing new editions of George Orwell’s best known books on January 21 to commemorate the inaugural “Orwell Day” — an annual event to celebrate the author and his influence on media and modern discourse.

Designed by David Pearson, each book has a unique, typography-focused layout. It is the cover of 1984, however, that really stands out. Using matt black foil over debossed type, Pearson symbolically censored the title and author, leaving just enough of a faint hint for a reader to identify the book.

Check out the designs for the rest of the series at the Creative Review blog.
