New edition of 1984 will feature a “censored” blacked out cover

Penguin is releasing new editions of five of books by George Orwell, with covers by designer David Pearson. Perhaps the best of the new designs is Pearson’s simple but brilliant idea for 1984, with the title and author’s name apparently censored with black foiling.

The black bars only obscure the text at a glance, however; they’ll still be visible in the right light. Pearson acknowledges that the design is a bit risky, but it’s a dramatic look, almost as if some government ministry had tried to hide the book from the public.

"There is the light of the mind, cold and planetary.
The trees of the mind are black. The light is blue.
The grasses unload their griefs on my feet as if I were God,

I simply cannot see where there is to get to."
Sylvia Plath, “The Moon and the Yew Tree,” from Ariel: The Restored Edition  (via mirroir)

"I notice that I am afraid of the almost physical strain of the effort to remember; afraid of the pain beneath which the floor of the thoughtless vacuum of the mind slowly opens up, or even merely heaves up a little in preparation."
Franz Kafka, from Diaries
