Shep's genius notwithstanding, the stenciled type and looming eye of 1984 seems a bit cliché... Animal farm is pretty hot though.

But the absolute best thing about these.... is that Shep managed to put his OWN logo on the cover of a Penguin book! TWO books! That's F***ing balls!!! I love it....

I can think in a more apropieted designer for Orwell´s books than Shepard Fairey. Love this ones!

I almost missed his logo on the bottom. Thanks for pointing that out. That DOES TAKE balls!

Anyone know what's the typeface for the version with the eye?
