Pupils and staff at a leading independent school have joined a growing international movement to celebrate World Book Day.

World Book Day, which celebrates stories and reading, has grown in popularity and usually sees children and teachers dress up as their favourite book character.

This year, Bradford Grammar School (BGS) is asking pupils and staff to post their #BookFace pictures on the School Library Twitter account, joining the growing international movement that was started by a team of Librarians in California.

#BookFace involves strategically lining up your face, or another body part, alongside a book cover that features a matching body part so that there appears a melding of life and art.

BGS Library Manager, Lesley Purcell, said: “We’re collecting many #BookFace pictures and will offer prizes for the best ones. The library will also be a hub of creativity on March 1, with students and staff displaying little cards that say why they love their favourite books.

“All library staff will be joining in the theme this year ‘dress up as a fictional villain’ and we will be hosting a book sale in the library. It’s all very exciting.”

#BookFace is popular on visual social media such as Instagram, using the hashtag #BookFace and #BookfaceFriday and images have gained popularity internationally.

Simon Hinchliffe, BGS’s Headmaster said: “World Book Day is always an enjoyable occasion at Bradford Grammar School. Every year both pupils and staff dress up as literary characters and this year we have been having some fun with #BookFace.”

The BGS Library will display all pictures on World Book Day. See more at @bgs_library #BookFace  #WorldBookDay
