Burnt Reading Fahrenheit 451

Superterrain veröffentlichen nächstes Jahr eine thermosensitiv bedruckte Ausgabe von Ray Bradburys Fahrenheit 451, die man nur mit 'nem Feuerzeug lesen kann („The book will turn black again when it cools down“). So ein bisschen das Gegenstück zur feuerfesten Erstausgabe aus Asbest.

An institute for fine art and design in Holland, The Jan van Eyck Academie, has come up with an experimental edition of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, which requires you to nearly burn the book to read it.

The pages of the book are completely black till you bring heat close to the paper. The sooty layer then disappears revealing the printed text underneath.

Bonustrack, grade durch den Feedreader gerutscht: 5 Books Ray Bradbury thought you should read

On this day 64 years ago—October 19, 1953—Ballantine Books first published Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Praised by science fiction fans and literary critics alike, the novel bridged the supposed chasm between genre writing and “serious” literature, winning awards from both the American Academy of Arts and Letters, as well as the World Science Fiction Society. Today, Fahrenheit 451 is considered not only a classic of science fiction, but of 20th-century American literature, period.

Bradbury’s novel was inspired by his love for books, so what better way to celebrate its anniversary than by sharing the books that he himself cherished? The five titles below are works that Bradbury not only praised, but lived with in various ways. They, and the stories around them, are cribbed from Sam Weller’s Listen to the Echoes: The Ray Bradbury Interviews.
