Orwell’s 1984 As Sexy 50’s Pulp Fiction

Jason Lundberg’s blog shows off the front and back covers of a 1954 paperback edition of George Orwell’s “1984.” I suppose, like a lot of the other paperback back then, there was an effort to “sex up” the cover art. The result is something that looks a little more like a quaint soft-core porn novel than one of the Classics.

Of course, the hot babe wears the “Anti-Sex League” button.
