Fahrenheit 451 is considered a modern masterpiece of literature. It’s a story about a dystopian future where books are made illegal and are burned en masse. It was a near revolutionary tale that has shaped the way we think about privacy today (and it was written back when not every novel was about a dystopian future).
Well in an ironic twist, French Publisher, Super Terrain, is making a version of the book with black pages that only reveal themselves when the special ink has been burned off with extreme heat. Though it’s not going to hold up to being burned in large bonfires, the fact that you can use the heat from a lighter to reveal the text is amazingly twisted.
The publisher is hoping to make copies of the special version available sometime in 2018.
