This may very well be my favorite cover ever:
I recently saw this new cover design for Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and I think it’s absolutely fantastic! The match replacing the ‘1’? Brilliant. The spine that looks like an actual matchbox? Ingenious.
I heard that the cover designer, Elizabeth Perez, even says that the spine really is printed with a matchbook striking paper surface, so the book could actually be burned. (Let’s just hope that nobody actually does that.)
I don’t know if this is the new official cover or just a showpiece, but I love it regardless. This may or may not have been my reaction to the new cover:
