Dinosaur tee

“I never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, slideshows or gorillas,” reads the Bradbury quote on this T-shirt, available in seven colors. “When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”



Hot socks


The design on these socks from Out of Print is inspired by Bradbury’s most famous work, Fahrenheit 451, and features one of the book’s most well-known quotes: “It was a pleasure to burn.” (T-shirts in both men’s and women’s styles are also available.)



Illustrating The Illustrated Man


The Folio Society edition of Bradbury’s second collection of short stories features dramatic illustrations by Marc Burckhardt and an introduction by Margaret Atwood. A Folio edition of another collection, Something Wicked This Way Comes, is also available at the same price.




Portrait print

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture,” reads this print, created by artist Ryan Sheffield. “Just get people to stop reading them.”
