The Librairie Mollat in France is attracting quite a lot of attention to their Instagram page after employees started noticing how closely their store's books resembled their customers and themselves.

Their cheeky photos show how book covers fit unusually well into the frames of everyday life, especially when they mirror the people holding them. It's a classic example of clever French wit, and Mollat's 21.2k followers are hooked on it. Mollat was the first independent bookstore in France, opening its doors in 1896 in Bordeaux, a legacy its current employees are only helping to bolster.

Have a peak at some of the funniest - and eeriest - juxtapositions below.

The way the eyelashes merge together is just blowing my mind. The whole thing is awesome!

Turns out the person posing for the image is a white woman. Don't judge a book by it's cover 😉

Looks kinda like she's aiming at that skeleton's a*s with that tongue.

A bright smile changes everything, in spite of what the cover intended.

I wonder which of his three sisters this one represents?

It's the other hand she's gesturing with, that gives this one attitude! Up vote!

I'd swear it's the actual man looking through a piece of glass. As if he's trying to fool the viewers!

This picture is even better if you've read the book. "The Bear Went Over the Mountain" is hilarious.

I think I would leave if that was the first thing I saw when entering the library!
