Burn the Remembrance by vesssper Burn the Remembrance by vesssper
Project inspired by Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451". The miniature bookcase is in a real book. All the pages were glued to make the box.. (i know i'm crazy).

See all the pictures at once HERE > [link]

My concept is explained on paper and glued to the cover. Here I will just mention a few key words which will give you an idea of what it is about.

"Fahrenheit 451" - a 1953 dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury. The novel presents a future American society where reading is outlawed and considered to result in antisocial behavior. Books are the major reason for a non-compliant with the system thinking and acting. Chasing, burning and destroying the left books is a task of firemen.

"Damnatio Memoriae" - is a Latin phrase literally meaning "condemnation of memory" in the sense of a judgment that a person must not be remembered. It was a form of dishonor that could be passed by the Roman Senate upon traitors or others who brought discredit to the Roman State.

I'm in love with this. :heart:

I adore the novel as well... this is just all the more beautiful once you know the context from which it is taken from. Of course, it's gorgeous even without that. You're so obviously skilled and creative. : )
