Like no version of Animal Farm you've read!

Found this cover recently and I'm completely baffled by the presence of the half-naked woman in bondage and the leopard who is not found very often on a traditional farm. I wonder if the artist had even read the description of the book...or if they were asked to paint a cover that would sell books. I'm sure it's the later.

Oh my.

Difficult to know what to say. If someone is sold the book on this cover alone, I'm wondering how many pages of reading it'll take before the "Hang on a minute!" moment.

That is one of the weirdest things ever!

hmmm maybe it's a scene from a "lost" chapter...

Joke or not, there actually used to be porn novels that were given the titles of "proper" literature and credited to the actual authors of the famous works...in some desperate hope they might pass for the real thing if found by some parent, teacher, boss, or nun who wasn't paying too close attention. In my distant youth I once saw a similar volume called "The Pearl" which was not in fact written by John Steinbeck, though the cover brazenly claimed it was. Sort of like the way "Gay Boys In Bondage" gets passed off as a Shakespeare play...

george orwell must be spinning in his grave for this

or the face that 1984 is coming to real life in the US

Check out http://www.vintagepbks.com for a lot of neat vintage covers... including this one used for "Animal Lust." The "Animal Farm" may have been somebody's idea of a joke (Aaron and I did some fake ones for "MasterRead Theatre[I'm still proud of "Nights of a Parisian Strumpet])), but the painting could also have been used for "Animal Lust"... which could be far worse than anything Orwell would haven't have dared wipe his ass with.

Oh, alright... I'd read either one, really.

It IS fake. I posted the link to the series at Slate above.

J.D.-
Oh my indeed!

John-
Not many I would imagine...

Swinebread-
Tee hee hee that's a chapter I'd like to read!

MC-
Thanks for the info! I am so glad this cover is not real...it was really freaking me out!

Oh that fake Little Women cover is hilarious!!!

RAB-
I so wish I could find some of these! What a great thing to collect! I'll have to see if I can find a website or something dedicated to these!

Distributorcap-
Better watch out for big Georgie and his wire tapping! I keep waiting for him to make Gregory Hines in charge of that there wire tapping.

Carl-
Oohhh thank you for the super neato link! I'd forgotten about MasterRead! That was really funny! The two of you should have gotten into sketch comedy.

I wold have read it years ago if I had seen this cover, as it is I just read it about a year ago after getting it for Christmas.

Becca said...

Dr. Monkey-
Great book glad you finally had a chance to read it! Did you like it?
