The Folio Society has released a new edition of Anthony Burgess’ novel A Clockwork Orange. The images shown here are illustrations created especially for the new edition by illustrator Ben Jones.
Because director Stanley Kubrick's unforgettable, stylistic imagery in the film version leaves such an indelible imprint in the minds of viewers, Jones had his work cut out for him in creating new, memorable art that could stand on its own. Jones discusses that point and more in the video below.
Part of Jones' planned separation from Kubrick's version involved him not watching the film as he created the new artwork. In the end, however, Jones did pay homage to Kubrick's visuals, as he acknowledged that Kubrick played a huge role in giving the novel longevity.
