Brave New World Cover

Brave New World Cover

The cover to the winning entry for The House of Illustration and Folio Society's annual Book Illustration competition. This years book was Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World".

The cover is a continuation of the idea behind the illustrations in the book; religion has been replaced by science. The cover reflects this with a design that comes across like a religious tome with the book's slogan "community, identity, stability" appearing like one of the ten commandments over the new iconic symbol; Ford's Model 'T'.
