About the Author
Amateur photographer Jody Smith inadvertently started Faces in Places when he spotted a common theme in his holiday snapshots, posted them on the web and soon realised that he wasn t the only person to recognise faces in inanimate objects. A blog followed, and the Faces in Places community grew exponentially. Jody, whose day job is commissioning digital projects for a TV broadcaster, lives in London, but uses the internet as his playground.

There are 8 distinct sections in the book, my favourites being 'Creature Features' which resemble animal faces and 'Name That Face' where you try to guess what the subject of the photograph is (the answers are upside down on the page and each picture has a title which hints at the answer). It's an amazingly effective book and it's interesting to see how giving a face to an object really has an anthropomorphic effect and you find yourself projecting personalities onto something like a light switch! Many will look down on this book and any suggestion that it could be considered art, but presenting every-day objects in a way which makes the viewer look at them in a completely different way is something special and I think most people would struggle to pick this up and not flick through with a grin.
In a nutshell: Boring objects are turned into a variety of faces in this book which would make an ideal gift for anyone with a sense of humour - any age. Adults will appreciate the alternative way of looking at the world and younger readers will be inspired to go and find faces themselves.
Would make a lovely gift, either for children or adults, and also a great coffee table book. Well worth the (very reasonable) price and I look forward to a follow-up edition with more pictures!
Couldn't resist a flick through myself and it cheered my up no end - lovely photos.
This is an ideal book for any cloud gazer.
It's an ideal stocking filler and kept her giggling for quite a while ... she is well into her 30's!
Definitely recommend if you know someone with an odd sense of humour ;)
