Funky Cover Fridays

It’s Friday again! Here’s another cover for you to kick off your weekend.

One of my favourite covers of all time is the censorship cover for George Orwell’s 1984.

Covered in black censorship bars but debossed, the title Nineteen Eighty-Four is barely visible, but it makes such a huge statement about the books message. It’s an intellectual, statement cover that says says more in its simplicity that if it were a more complicated image. The design communicates the entire meaning and tone of Orwell’s story with utter perfection.

What are some other 1984 covers that you liked (or didn’t like)?
