1966 Penguin edition of Orwell's 1984. There were three variations on this cover in the late 1960s. The painting is 'The Control Room, Civil Defence Headquarters' by William Roberts, which was painted in 1941. It is now in Salford Museum and Art Gallery's collection and will be on display along with his two preparitory works in my exhibition at the gallery, called 1984 Looks Like This. 17 March to 1 July 2012.
