The Librairie Mollat, the first independent bookstore in France, is continuing with their goal to match as many people with books as possible.

Over a year ago this bookstore simply blew up online with their fun and unique take on "don't judge a book by its cover." The employees started sharing images of real people, themselves and their customers, extending the pictures of the book covers.

Now the bookstore has close to 64k followers on Instagram who love the creative take on book promotion.

Take a look at some of these amazing pictures and vote for the best.

The skin tone is different, but the hair matches perfectly. The model is very striking.

Maybe they meant it as a joke, but: Without being able to read the title of the red book, I think they made an even better statement than Banksy. On the long run "just flowers" won't help. Often the right education and knowledge are needed to make or keep peace.

Not as well done as the others, I think. The employee's face is not in sharp focus, and the hair and clothes don't match up.

I think it's a young woman behind there. The hips are too curvy to be a guy.

She missed the part in her hair. It would have sold the transition between book to real world a bit better imo

i feel as if it should have had the book a little further away so the size is more realistic
