George Orwell, 1984 (book cover by Olle Eksell, 1959). Read it when I was in Grade Six and still traumatized to this day. Prescient and insightful about the use of media (music, news, television, film) to further the project of tyranny and control.
Jonathan Safran Foer is an awesome, Jewish writer. And he is married to Nicole Krauss. Can you say: literary jewish power-couple!?
Flavorwire's compilation of cover designs for '1984' has some gems, including this one for a Swedish edition
