Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Wellington leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organized to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges.
Animal Farm – the history of a revolution that went wrong – is George Orwell’s brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power.
Renegade street artist turned art professional, Shepard Fairey, has brought his iconic art to the cover of this literary masterpiece. Only one other of Orwell’s books, Nineteen Eighty-four, has been re-jacketed with Fairey’s artwork. Impressive as they are potent, get ready to turn a few heads as these modern classics are eyed up with envy.
