"Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner,
burn 'em to ashes, then burn the ashes."
For Guy Montag, a career fireman for whom kerosene is perfume,
this is not just an official slogan. It is a mantra, a duty, a way
of life in a tightly monitored world where thinking is dangerous
and books are forbidden.
In 1953, Ray Bradbury envisioned one of the world's most
unforgettable dystopian futures, and in Ray Bradbury's
Fahrenheit 451, the artist Tim Hamilton translates this
frightening modern masterpiece into a gorgeously imagined graphic
novel. As could only occur with Bradbury's full cooperation in this
authorized adaptation, Hamilton has created a striking work of art
that uniquely captures Montag's awakening to the evil of
government-controlled thought and the inestimable value of
philosophy, theology, and literature.
Including an original foreword by Ray Bradbury and fully
depicting the brilliance and force of his canonic and beloved
masterwork, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is an
exceptional, haunting work of graphic literature.
