To Orwell Today,
This e-mail is in response to another e-mail that you received in the past from someone named "May" regarding how to buy 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc editions of 1984. See 1984 CHERISHED BOOK COVERS
I stumbled upon your website after doing a little bit of browsing for my own Orwell collection. I am a fanatical fan of 1984 ever since reading it in high school. A few years ago, a friend of mine bought me an Easton Press edition of the book, and the idea came to me to start a small collection and see how many different editions of 1984 I could find. After a few years and a lot of internet searching, I am proud to say that my collection has expanded to almost 200 different editions in over 30 languages and still growing. I am always on the lookout for new editions of 1984 and it is very interesting to see all of the different cover art for the book.
Feel free to give "May" my e-mail address and I would most certainly be able to point her in the right direction, as I have an extensive amount of paperback editions myself.
To inspire interest in your collection of 200 editions of 1984 perhaps you could scan or take a photo of a selection of the covers to share with ORWELL TODAY readers.
I'll forward your email address to any requests received.
All the best,
