Jonathan Burton
Nineteen Eighty Four

Create a binding design and 10 interior illustrations to the new edition of George Orwell's 1984. Burton created the colourless and grimy world that Orwell describes, by smudging in the pencil work and colouring in very oily and sickly tones. Each image has straight lines bearing down on the scene like a prison.
