I'll admit that I'm a bit of a book snob – I definitely judge a book by its cover – so when I saw this ingenious edition of Animal Farm I was instantly in love. George Orwell's 1945 classic haunts the mind of many a literature student (including mine) and has seen an array of different covers across the years, but this simple design is arguably an instant classic. 

While it's easy to get caught up in design trends, this simple book cover is a prime example of the less-is-more approach. With sleek imagery, clean typography and an ingenious hidden detail, it combines style and function to create a timeless look that's appealing to old and new readers alike.
