This short film called Bookface lines up famous book covers with their real-life locations and the people in them.
Made by Jacco Kliesch for the Erlangen City library, the film looks to bring book covers to life. As most novels are quite small in size, fitting a big image on the front can be tricky. One popular get-around is to cut off a section of the image that’s featured. In this film, the image is filled in using real people and locations. It’s amazing to look at and makes each book feel “alive”.
When we’re mesmerised by a book cover, we can often forget about the work that might’ve gone into making it. Seeing the surrounding area of each cover re-created is stunning. It’s super satisfying to see the two perfectly lined up. It’s cleverly done and the video features all sorts of different books from a range of genres. It’s a unique idea and the creative team pull it off perfectly. We’re really blown away by this one.
