Book of the Day




Those crazy kids and their internets! Apparently while I wasn't paying attention (because Project Runway was on) they started a "hot new web trend" called Sleeveface. And now it's a book! For those of you who were as unaware of this phenomena as I was, Sleeveface is a kind of game (where everyone's a winner!) which involves, "obscuring or augmenting any part of your body with an album jacket (aka sleeve)." For those of you who were born after 1985, an album jacket is... oh never mind.


Some of the Sleeveface photos are interesting because of the careful blend of the record sleeve and the Sleevefacer. Others are clever juxtapositions of the sleeves with unexpected surroundings. A lot of them are just people holding record covers over their faces and not being interesting or clever at all.


It's a cute little book. I don't know if I'd be willing to shell out fourteen bucks for it, though. Especially since most of the content is already available online for free.
