Photography Tips:

  • If the face on the book cover is the same size as your face, hold the book close; if smaller than your face, hold the book further away.
  • You may need someone else to hold the book.
  • Feel free to dress up.
  • Try different camera angles to get the right shot.
  • Google “bookface” for more examples.
