1984 by George Orwell

Next up is a copy of another classic novel by George Orwell: his final work, 1984. I found this old Penguin UK paperback in a used bookstore in Tucson, and even though I already had a copy of the book, I couldn't resist picking up this perfect example of the classic Penguin design. I strangely like how there was a time when all of Penguin's paperbacks looked virtually the same--you could always tell a Penguin when you saw one.

This year marked the 60th anniversary of the publication of 1984, and I got to work on a few projects commemorating this event, including the following video, a fake commercial for Victory coffee (I even make a cameo appearance later on). Totally silly, but it was fun to work on.
