Animal Farm by Ralph Steadman is an illustrative look at the classic piece of literature. Often part of a high school English class curriculum, these drawings detail many of the crucial events that take place in the book. A creepy depiction of the plot, the images capture the impossible circumstances that unfold throughout George Orwell's novel.

Although the British cartoonist is best known for his work with American author Hunter S. Thompson, Animal Farm by Ralph Steadman also solidifies his immense talent. Accompanying the powerful images is the author's original unpublished preface in which he writes, "If publishers and editors exert themselves to keep certain topics out of print, it is not because they are frightened of prosecution but because they are frightened of public opinion. In this country intellectual cowardice is the worst enemy a writer or journalist has to face." Stats for Classic Literature Illustrations Trending: Older & Buzzing
