Book Lovers Pose Behind Books To Complete the Scenes From the Book Covers

Mar 4, 2014 By Joey

Back in 2008, “hardcore indie bookseller” Emily Pullen used some downtime at the store where she worked in Los Angeles to create whimsical photographs that blended portions of people shown on book covers with actual people who were posing behind the books. Pullen’s experiment turned into a series called Corpus Libri, Latin for “Body Books”…

Corpus Libri 1

Since then, she and fans of the series have amassed a fantastic collection of humorous photos that she’s posted to her blog, and now to her new Tumblr.

Here are some fun examples…

Corpus Libri 2

Corpus Libri 17
