Corpus Libris: Lending Bodies to Books

Do you love Murakami so much that you want to be a part of his books? Or even better – do you want his books to be a part of you? We’re talking only in a picture, folks. Corpus Libris, a playful ongoing photography project, assigns books to bodies and bodies to books, creating literal mashups of reality and book art.
