People Humorously Blend Themselves in with Book Covers

The photo series Corpus Libris (which literally means "Body Books" in Latin) was created by Emily Pullen on one slow Thursday night at the Los Angeles independent bookstore Skylight Books, where Pullen worked. In this series, people cover parts of their body with books in order to creatively blend themselves in with the covers and create optical illusions. Since the project's creation, it has grown more and more popular, inspiring others to take their own Corpus Libris photos and send them to Pullen at her website, where she may post them.

It takes some imagination and careful positioning to get the book covers to line up perfectly with body parts and faces, but the results can be fantastic. The project is a fun way for book lovers everywhere to unleash their creativity.
