Fahrenheit 451 Book Cover With a Match and Striking Paper

Designer Elizabeth Perez has created a unique copy of Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 that comes with a match and has striking paper along its spine.

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.
