Bookfacing has become a popular activity at many libraries since all it requires is a camera, a good imagination, and plenty of books! Luckily, libraries still have tons of books! The goal is to take a book that has a face on the cover and pose behind it so that your clothing and posture blend in with the book’s cover art to create the impression of an extension of the cover photo. It can be a lot of fun and it takes an artistic eye and a creative mind. The more dedicated bookfacers also put together a proper costume to match whatever the book’s cover subject is wearing. It is a little like cosplay with library books tossed in for added levels of difficulty. The staff and patrons of the South San Francisco Library have created some wonderful examples like this royally beautiful Duchess Catherine (Kate Middleton) bookface!
