I picked up this copy of 'Fahrenheit 451' at BookBuyers shortly after moving to Palo Alto, lo those many years ago. This is when BookBuyers was in downtown Palo Alto.
For those of you who don't know, BookBuyers is s local used book store that is, sadly, fallen on hard times and has to leave their current location in Mountain View. I don't know if they have a landing spot yet but you can check out their GoFundMe campaign
I saw the movie of 'Fahrenheit 451' long before I read the book and I loved it. I would always stop if I found it on TV while flipping channels.
I'm not quite sure what to say about this cover other than "I like it". The flamethrower, the mask, the piles of burning books. Everything in shades of orange and yellow. With the black figure of the fireman in the center. Just look at those flames! Gorgeous!
Huh, I guess I did have something to say. I leave you with this.
“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
