Answer: Fahrenheit 451

You’d be hard pressed to find a book better suited to be bound in fire-proof asbestos than Fahrenheit 451—Ray Bradbury’s iconic dystopian novel focused on a future American society where books are outlawed and firemen hunt down and burn books rather than put out house fires.

Shortly after Fahrenheit 451 was published in 1953, a run of 200 numbered special edition books was produced. These books, bound in white with red cover text, included both a printed signature on the cover and an actual signature inside. More significantly, the books were bound in covers made of asbestos cloth, a fireproof mineral and a symbolic nod to the contents of the book itself.

If you think that’s clever, it would seem Fahrenheit 451 and clever designs go together. Super Terrain, a European publisher, released a copy of the book in 2018 that features jet black pages with writing that can only be revealed if you wave a hot flame over the page.
