1984 by George Orwell, Redacted
Recently Penguin Books issued new editions of books by George Orwell. I have always been a fan of the novel 1984, but when I saw this cover by David Pearson, I had to have it. The title redacted is perfect.
This edition is now out of print, so I had a few sent to me from vintage book dealers. Simply one of the best book covers, ever.
We are lifelong bibliophiles. Shelves filled with books line our studio walls and more are stacked on every surface. We admire their design, scrutinize their typography, fetishize their paper and analyze their binding. We read them for research, for inspiration, for the sheer pleasure of exploring new worlds of thought and experience.
We have curated a selection of books to offer our audience, based on our interests and yours. Most of our books are limited editions or out of print, they are seldom available in the US, and not available on Amazon.
The fact that we have now launched our own imprint seems an inevitable extension. Wms&Co. books are created in collaboration with the interesting characters, visionaries and designers we encounter. Subject matter varies wildly but is always infused with the spirit of creativity and a respect for good design.
