Owen, who hails from Little Rock, AR, created a cover that beat out more than 360 submissions. Both the Simon & Schuster staff and the Bradbury estate participated in judging the entries.

Here’s more from the release: “The contest was held in in celebration of the upcoming 60th anniversary of Ray Bradbury’s iconic classic Fahrenheit 451. The public was invited to design a new cover, which will be featured on the first printing of the 60th anniversary edition.”
