Judging a book by its cover.

Ray Bradbury is one of my favorite writers, and will be for eternity. He passed away a few days ago, and wrote his presumable last piece for the New Yorker on June 4, entitled "Take Me Home." It's a beautiful piece and I suggest you read it. I'm sure many people read Fahrenheit 451 in high school, and maybe some of you have read his other books or short stories. My favorite collection of stories is The Toynbee Convector, and I even have the cover art tattooed on my arm. I'm a huge fan of everything Bradbury.I think his works will be aptly celebrated in the near future.

A certain piece of work was recently uncovered, and sent to boingboing by an anonymous reader. It is a concept for Walt Disney World's EPCOT Center. It's a 23-page read, but so illustrative you'll never know you actually read anything (but reading is awesome, so it's all good). The links are below, for your reading pleasure.

I mentioned the artwork on Bradbury's novels. As with any printing of a book, the artwork could vary from edition to edition. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite covers. Let's do this!
