fahrenheit451bookcover-980x730

Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is a novel about a dystopian future where books are outlawed and firemen burn any house that contains them. As part of her schooling at The Austin Creative Department, Elizabeth Perez designed this book cover to enhance Bradbury’s message and it has gone viral.

She writes: “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.” The design has reached one million views online and “it’s been tremendously inspiring to see something that is not a cat video or a silly GIF get popular online. I’m so proud that something I put my sweat and tears into received recognition. This experience has been extremely motivating for me, and I hope I can create more work in the future that is as impactful and inspiring to others.” Creative Director is Will Chau of GSD&M.
