French publisher Super Terrain is working in the lab developing a special heat-sensitive edition of the classic novel Fahrenheit 451 by American writer Ray Bradbury. To reinforce the book’s message, which takes place in a dystopian future where books are outlawed and burned, this edition has black thermochromic pages that at first glance appear to have no words on them. The words only appear when heat is applied to the pages.

The book will be available through the Super Terrain store next year. You can get a glimpse of it revealing its words in the video below:
