To the left, the 2003 version of George Orwell’s mandatory classic, “1984.” To the right the new cover done by Shepard Fairey which even features a centrally placed OBEY logo on the lower cover. Is it a big improvement, another act of defacement, or not all that different from the other version to matter? The cease and desist issuing artist also redid “Animal Farm,” you can see it here. Check out some of the Orwellian cover art evolutions ANIMAL compiled after the jump.
