1984 book covers doubleplusgood

The folks over at Retinart collected various covers of the George Orwell classic 1984. Their view was that not all of these accurately represented the subject matter contained inside so they created their own version. I was smitten with all the different interpretations over the years from the classic Penguin to the pulp cover (top right corner) and all the typographic variations. Some have withstood the test of time while others create a different perspective based on the cover design alone.
