We've admired all the creative energy some people have been able to muster while they're staying at home these days. Having an outlet for imagination and play is a great strategy for keeping your energy up and creative juices flowing.

After seeing the four roommates recreating famous works of art with household items (and posting them on Instagram for us all to enjoy) and the clever responses to the Getty Museum's similar art challenge, we wanted to get in on the fun. Of course, our muse of choice is book covers!

Whether you are staying home alone, with family, friends, roommates or furry friends, we hope you'll join us and recreate a book cover you love.

Tag your photo with #bookcoverdouble on social media so everyone can marvel at your craftiness, ingenuity and resourcefulness. 

Here are a few we put together to get the party started!
