Animal farm : a fairy story by George Orwell ( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 990 libraries worldwide
Since its publication fifty years ago, Animal Farm has become one of the most controversial books ever written. It has been translated into seventy languages and sold millions of copies throughout the world. This edition is being published to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of its original U.S. publication. It features 100 full-color and halftone illustrations by world-renowned artist Ralph Steadman. As vital and relevant as it was fifty years ago, Animal Farm is a devastating satire of the Soviet Union by the man V. S. Pritchett called "the conscience of his generation." A fable about an uprising of farm animals against their human masters, it illustrates how new tyranny replaces old in the wake of revolutions and power corrupts even the noblest of causes. This anniversary edition includes Orwell's proposed but unpublished preface to the original edition and his preface to the 1947 Ukranian edition. These appendices evoke the historical context in which Orwell conceived and wrote his classic novel.

The joke's over : bruised memories : Gonzo, Hunter S. Thompson, and me by Ralph Steadman ( Book )

In the spring of 1970, British artist Ralph Steadman went to America in search of work and found more than he bargained for. At the Kentucky Derby he met a former associate of the Hell's Angels, one Hunter S. Thompson. Their working relationship resulted in the now-legendary Gonzo Journalism. This book tells the inside story of a remarkable collaboration that documented the turbulent years of the civil rights movement, the Nixon years, Watergate, and the many bizarre and great events that shaped the second half of the twentieth century. When Thompson committed suicide in 2005, it was the end of a unique friendship filled with both betrayal and understanding.--From publisher description.

Psycho too by Will Self ( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
"Psycho Too reunites Will Self and Ralph Steadman for a second selection of words and pictures from 'Psychogeography', their post-millennial Independent columns on the vexed relationship of psyche and place in a globalised world." "The introduction, 'Walking to the World', is a new extended essay by Self, accompanied by Steadman's inimitable images. It tells the story of Self's trek from J. G. Ballard's house in Shepperton to the high-rises of Dubai - that Gotterdammerung of the contemporary built environment. Self's ultimate aim was to walk the length of the artificial Britain-shaped island, part of the offshore luxury housing development known as 'The World'. Written during Ballard's last days, Self's essay is at once an homage to his literary mentor, and an extension of Ballard's own satiric and surrealist vision - by ambulatory means." "Ranging from Istanbul to Los Angeles and from the crumbling coastline of East Yorkshire to the adamantine heads of Easter Island, Will Self's engaging and disturbing prose is as ever perfectly counterpointed by Ralph Steadman's edgy and dazzling artwork."--BOOK JACKET.
