Illustrator Marion Deuchars has designed the covers for four George Orwell books, published this week by Penguin. Each volume has one of Orwell’s major works at its core – Homage to Catalonia, Animal Farm, The Road to Wigan Pier and Down and Out in Paris and London – plus letters, essays and journalism.
