This copy of Ray Bradbury's classic dystopic novel Fahrenheit 451 provides a compelling read that comes wrapped in a deliciously ironic package.

The cover for this particular copy of the bleakly futuristic novel comes with a match built into the cover, and a rough match-striking surface along the spine of the book. The beautiful irony of this Fahrenheit 451 cover is that the novel's protagonist is part of a squad that burns books in an effort to make a uniform society with far less independent thought. It also serves as a commentary about the death of literature in modern society with more stimulating entertainment like TV. The striking (no pun intended) cover was designed by Elizabeth Perez.

Personally, I think this Fahrenheit 451 cover is far too beautifully ironic to ever consider actually torching it.
