Librarie Mollat made a name of itself in 2017 when its owners decided to share photos of people completing the images of various book covers. Many book covers show just a part of the human body or face and the owners of this store thought it would be fun to extend this image and create the fuller one staying as close as they could near what they thought the person on the cover would look like in real life. Their matches impressed million of people online and their little project hasn’t finished yet and probably never will.
No differences to be noticed.
The illustrator’s real life model.
A femme fatale.
Gaston’s body fit.
The look of silent despair.
Being cool like Jack Kerouac.
Delacroix would approve.
Red, passionate lips.
A rare match for this old photo.
Librairie Mollat has 65k followers on Instagram, which must be a record number for a bookstore, proving that people can still find interest in books if they are presented to them in a less visibly intellectual way.
