Classic novel Farenheit 451 released with matchbook striking surface to burn after reading

By on Thursday, April 11, 2013


I’m not generally fond of book-burning but this is quite a good idea from the literary world.

US designer Elizabeth Perez designed a copy of Ray Bradbury’s classic, Farenheit 451 with a matchbook striking surface so that the book can be burned. This really brings attention to the book. But it does beg the question, why would you burn a really great piece of literature?

Well that’s because the book is about a dystopian future where books are regularly burned. Very clever idea.

With thanks to Shortlist for carrying this.
