Anthony Burgess Re-Covered

By Eliza Williams

Hosted in a small space within Manchester’s Anthony Burgess Foundation, ‘Burgess Re-Covered’ sees prints of new designs for classic Burgess novels displayed around the walls. The show forms part of a number of events taking place this year in celebration of what would have been Burgess’ 100th birthday.

In accompanying display cases, visitors are given the added treat of seeing some of the real designs used on covers for titles such as A Clockwork Orange, The Doctor Is Sick and Earthly Powers from over the decades, which offer a neat insight into the changing fashions in book design over time.
