New design cover of "Fahrenheit 451" encourages readers to burn the book after reading.

Alluding to the book’s spellbinding storyline, Elizabeth Perez’s new concept book cover for the notorious Fahrenheit 451 is spreading like wildfire. Fahrenheit 451 is a novel about a dystopian future where literature is a social taboo and firemen burn any house that holds books.

The hardback cover is made of white fabric, and features an embedded matchstick. The book’s spine is screen-printed with a matchbook striking paper surface. If you were wondering, yes, the book itself can be burned. Perez’s design is simple, but sends a very powerful message.

Unfortunately, this “burnable” version is currently not available, but with over 900,000 admirers, it is hopefully only a matter of time until this version makes it way to bookstores.
