Stuff you never knew you never knew

Spotted in London at Foyles (which is moving into a newly constructed building next door in early 2014): Penguin UK’s brilliant and audacious reissue of Orwell’s ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four.’ It’s designed in the classic orange and white bands as mid-century Penguin paperbacks were, but it’s embossed and redacted.

No American publisher would have the courage to let a book’s theme drive the design so confidently that the title of the product would be obscured.
