Nineteen Eighty-Four T-Shirt - George Orwell

A black unisex t-shirt screen printed with a design inspired by George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four.

"It was a bright cold day in April and the clocks were striking thirteen.” 

George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four. 

This iconic opening line is used by the author to set the dramatic tone for the futuristic, oppressive, absolutist world of life under the all-seeing eyes of ‘Big Brother' in the fictional state of Oceania. The novel follows the life of Winston Smith and his search for freedom from the repressive government that controls every aspect of his life. 

 The dystopian-inspired design has been screen printed in the South West of England, onto a soft, black t-shirt. The relaxed fit top is a comfy, yet stylish item of clothing and makes a great literature-themed gift for a book lover. 

 Please note the book is not included with the t-shirt listing but the Nineteen Eighty-Four Gift Set, containing this book, can be purchased separately.
