french bookstore takes on instagram by blending people’s faces with book covers

libraries are usually quiet places, sanctuaries where we can retreat from our screens into the paper world. but what happens when you mix your love for books and popular instagram posts? the result is #bookface, a hashtag used by librairie mollat — an independent bookstore in bordeaux, france —where employees and clients perfectly juxtapose their faces and other body parts with book covers, creating eerie images that integrate bookstore culture into social media.
