He wrote this under his real name Edward Arthur Blair--and was paid 225 francs.

Read it and see how prescient he was.

Photo is of my 3 D collage Newspeak, inspired by Orwell and made from Burmese newspapers.  There is a small photo of KN in his prime in the R eye.

The pink paper is from a Chinese takeout menu and I made this in 1997.
