Book cover by Elizabeth Perez


Elizabeth Perez’s concept cover for Fahrenheit 451 features the same gritty striking side you’d find on a matchbox, screen-printed on the book’s spine. Easy to burn.


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.
