My entry for Folio Society Book Illustration Competition 2013.
About Brave New World by Aldous Huxley:
" Huxley’s 1932 dystopian fable is the equivalent of a short sharp shock. It focuses on a world state in the 7th century AF (After Ford) where social stability is based on a scientific caste system. Bernard Marx is an unorthodox, unhappy Alpha Plus (a high intellectual grade) who visits a New Mexican Reservation and returns to London with a Savage. The Savage is a first fascinated by this new world, but eventually revolts against it, in a compelling demonstration of the incompatibility of human freedom and a scientifically troublefree society."
