All animals are equal…

I recently ran across the wonderful 50th anniversary edition of the first U.S. publication of George Orwell’s Animal House. Issued in 1995, Animal House: A Fairy Story features 100 mindblowing illustrations by the inimitable Ralph Steadman.

Along with the addition of the brilliant illustrations, the commemorative edition included Orwell’s unpublished preface to the original edition titled “The Freedom of the Press.”

Sadly, the 50th anniversary edition from Harcourt Brace and Co. is no longer in print. However, there are quite a few reasonably priced used copies available from secondhand booksellers.
