After seeing some truly fun Instagram photos on the Central Library's account we started to do some diggin' and found out #bookface is a thing! According to The New York Times,

"Bookface involves strategically lining up your face or another body part alongside a book cover that features a matching body part so that there appears a melding of life and art."

The Central Library held a contest from January 25th until February 14th to receive submissions for a chance to win prizes. Even though this contest is over, we thought it would still be great to join in the fun. What do you think?

Stefanie is Co-Founder of the Rochesteriat and thinks they could have done a better job with their bookfaces, guess they'll just have to try again! Join the conversation on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
