George `Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four’ is one of
the most important novels of the 20th Century.

Since it was first published in 1949, it has sold
millions of copies, been translated into dozens
of languages and never gone out of print.

different covers have tried to capture the power
of Orwell’s ideas to sell Big Brother to every new
generation of readers.
