'1984' by George Orwell

by George Orwell - today, big brother is everywhere. And I'm not talking about a bunch of imbeciles in a video-supervised house.

This book makes me want to lay in a pile of my books and hug them all, for fear of losing them.

Book cover design for the Swedish edition of George Orwell's novel - 1959 - artist Olle Eksell.

"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.

This is an effective book cover - the overprinting of the top and bottom circle with the middle circle being hidden behind the bottom one is suggestive of groups of people.
