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.
