We tried loads of photographic approaches for this cover before arriving at this. I created this illustration as a last-minute entry to the Cover Meeting, and amazingly it ended up being the finished jacket. Here's the finished cover, plus a close-up of the illustration.
Fahrenheit 451 (60th Anniversary Book Jacket). This is a book jacket I designed for the 60th Anniversary Edition of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. My concept is the idea of disconnect that is prominent on the book — the characters are disconnected from reality as well as each other. The cover also references 1950's data punch cards.
