Playing With Sleeveface

Sam Proud

British DJ Carl Morris has taken the face of hundreds of legendary singers and musicians. It's part of his latest obsession, sleevefacing. On his blog Sleeveface, he defines the new trend as "one or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion." On the show this morning, Alex Cohen talks to him about the phenomenon and his book, Sleeveface: Be The Vinyl.

Here at NPR-West, some of us decided to get into the sleeveface spirit. We asked employees to bring in their old album covers and try "being the vinyl." You can see the results in the gallery below. Think you can do better? Send us your sleeveface creations at and we'll include the best ones in our gallery.
