I tried to convey a message of government takeover. I don't really know which way I was going.
The book burning and the books that were once websites depict how the government controls what we see. The blindfold signifies how we aimlessly accept what the government dictates. And the "must see" books is the book stores attempt to spread knowledge that the government once tried to eliminate. The keyboard ceiling is the loss of the internet.

I hope there isn't too much going on in here...

Excellent work. The details are super. The blindfold, the jacket detail, the illusion of burning books, the ceiling, all super.
can't vote, but I would have given high marks.
