Since 2008, bookseller Emily Pullen (then at LA’s Skylight Books, now manager at WORD Brooklyn) has been mixing books with bodies at her blog Corpus Libris. It’s a simple concept executed elegantly, and it’s a ton of fun. The photos are below are just a few of the delights to be found in Corpus Libris’ five years of archives. Head on over to check out the rest, and follow Emily on Twitter @corpuslibris for book news and all her latest posts.
