George Orwell Set
Despite a too-short life in the first half of the 20th century, George Orwell’s voice – widely known, thanks to the novels Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm – comes across as modern and clairvoyant. Though his books jolted readers when they were first published, they’ve become eerier with time, as elements of our world have drifted to align with Orwell’s fictional universes. Orwell was a massive talent and influence, and his writings are absorbing and illuminating. We’ve brought together several of those works in this collection of volumes published by Everyman’s Library, with a custom jacket design inspired by two symbols related to Orwell’s literary imprint: the ominous Big Brother and vintage TV test patterns.
- Nineteen Eighty-Four
- Animal Farm
- Burmese Days, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, Coming up for Air
