Elizabeth Perez's concept design for an edition of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 features a strike-anywhere match set into the cover and a screen-printed striking surface on the spine, so you can use the book to set fire to itself. This Fahrenheit 451 design would make a great accompaniment to the asbestos-bound first edition.
Fahrenheit 451 is a novel about a dystopian future where books are outlawed and firemen burn any house that contains them. The story is about suppressing ideas, and about how television destroys interest in reading literature.I wanted to spread the book-burning message to the book itself. The book's spine is screen-printed with a matchbook striking paper surface, so the book itself can be burned
