"Self and Others" by R.D. Laing, published by Pelican Books, cover design by Germano Facetti (1926-2006) who revolutionised British book design with his Penguin jackets in the 1960s. He was arrested in 1943 for putting up anti-Fascist posters. He was deported to Mauthausen as a forced labourer, where he met the architect Ludovico Belgiojoso who later invited him to join his practice in Milan.
Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent even in the mind.
