Burn the book if you want to read it !!

Yes, there exists a book that can be read only when you burn it. Surprised? Well, yes!

Ray Bradbury celebrated his dystopian novel, Fahrenheit 451, that refers to the temperature at which the paper burns can now be read while burning it.

The brilliant idea was formulated by a French graphic firm Super Terrain and the video was shared by The Jan van Eyck Academie, an institute for fine art and design in Holland on Instagram.

Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by American writer, Ray Bradbury, published in 1953. It is regarded as one of his best works. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and ‘firemen’ burn any that are found. The book’s tagline explains the title: “Fahrenheit 451-the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns…”

The papers of the novel are covered in a soot-like substance which disappears when you bring fire near it hence making reading possible.
