If you haven't read it, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is about a dystopian future where books are illegal and destroyed in an attempt to suppress the populace. And as the title implies: fire is the weapon of choice for eradicating literature.

So artist Elizabeth Perez designed a new cover for the book that features the same gritty striking material you'd find on a matchbox, screen-printed on the spine of the book. When you're done reading it, you can easily set it ablaze. Or, you know, just put it back safely on your bookshelf as a cautionary tale for future generations. [Elizabeth Perez via Notcot]
