Founded in 2008, Corpus Libris (Books With Bodies) is the blog brainchild of bookseller Emily Pullen. Her idea was simple—hold a book in front of someone and take a picture—but the results are stunning. Warping reality, the photographs extend book cover images into the real world by matching them with people’s bodies.
We selected some of our favorite shots for this gallery, but check out the blog for more mind-bending images. Corpus Libris regularly updates and accepts photo submissions from around the globe.
