Book Face

I never seem to tire of the many iterations of the “bookface” project. You probably have  seen versions produced by bored bookshop staff across Europe. Or, perhaps you have stumbles upon  #BookfaceFriday, or simply #Bookface, a meme in which you replace your face (or another part of your body) with a book, creating a clever and literary trompe l’oeil.

German filmmaker Jacco Kliesch took the meme to the next level in this short film, created in collaboration with the staff of the public library in Erlangen, Germany. “For two days,” he writes, “we were carefully lining up faces, objects and body parts—each time trying to create a perfect melding of life and art.”
