This book cover incorporates a key element of the story in physical form, as the story centers around the burning of books (paper lights at 451 degrees). The unexpected riskiness of a match and ignition strip attached to a hardcover book catches the viewer off guard, but makes this version of the book a desirable collectible for any fan, even if they already own another copy. In potentially selling a second version of an item already owned to consumers, this design is impressively desirable.
