To Orwell Today,

Dear Mrs. Jura,

I work for a Publishing House in Spain that is about to publish an illustrated edition of "Animal Farm", by George Orwell.

I have arrived by chance to your web site and seen some of the material you have there about "Animal Farm", like photographs of rare editions, comics, etc.... And I would very much like to include some of them in our edition. Do you think it could it be possible?

If your answer is yes, we would need the image we choose in high-res and quite urgently, because the publication is almost closed.

Of course we could talk about any compensation you would require.

Thank you very much in advance,
Ana Camallonga

Greetings Ana,

I assume the comics and rare editions you refer to are from the ANIMAL FARM COMIC IN MAURITIUS and ANIMAL FARM DRAWINGS COLLECTION articles on my website.

I'll forward our email exchange to Robert Furlong and Chris Rushworth and hopefully they'll contact you with higher resolution and permission to use their photos.

Upon its publication please send info on your Spanish edition of "Animal Farm" to share with ORWELL TODAY readers. Muchas gracias.

All the best,
Jackie Jura

Hi Jackie,

Thanks for your sharing. Ana has been in contact with me. This is exciting because I also collect illustrated editions of Animal Farm from the 1940's and 1950's. It is nice to be involved in a modern illustrated edition.
