Penguin Classics - Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell Framed Print, 42 x 32cm

Product information

With its bright colours and vivid design, the Penguin brand is easily recognisable as one of the first iconic paperback. It's presented in a solid oak frame with a thick quality mount. Perfect for literature lovers, it's the ideal addition to any room, from an office to a kid's bedroom.
George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is a about dystopian future where Big Brother controls everything.
Penguin paperbacks were the brainchild of Allen Lane. Frustrated at the very limited choice of reading material at a station bookstall, Lane decided that good quality contemporary fiction should be made available at an attractive price, and sold not just in traditional bookshops, but also in railway stations, tobacconists and chain stores.
The first Penguin paperbacks appeared in the summer of 1935. They were colour coded (orange for fiction, blue for biography, green for crime and so on) and cost just 6p, the same price as a packet of cigarettes.
