I Love Sleeveface

Sleeveface, The Book
What a bloody good idea. Beautifully simple, and especially pertinent to those of us old enough to remember the joy of 12″ vinyl sleeve art.

For those of you not familiar – sleeveface is a popular online meme that encourages participants to obscure a portion of their body with a record sleeve so as to merge the image with reality. Thousands of people have tried their hand at the optical illusion and there are loads of great images filling up flickr pools. There is even a youtube video tutorial. (Of course!)

Now someone has had the brilliant (I wish I’d done that!) idea of making a 192 page book out of it. It comes out on the 17th of November (two days before my birthday, folks!).
