Animal Farm - Penguin Competition


A book cover created for the Penguin book cover contest that takes place every year.

In Animal Farm, George Orwell crafts a fictional story about an animal rebellion gone awry to critique the real-life events that followed the Russian Revolution of 1917. Throughout the book it talks about how the Pigs are becoming more and more like the Humans that they overthrow to gain power. I wanted to give this theme a clear image to engage the reader with while still leaving the audience to discover what the image means on their own. To do so I used the image of a pig removing a human mask.
