Books come alive




In case you missed it - in this magical video, books come alive after dark at Type, a Toronto bookstore I'd like to visit someday. What an imaginative way to capture the wonderful worlds we enter through reading.

The video was created by animator Sean Ohlenkamp and his wife. For more, read the Publisher's Weekly Tip sheet interview about the genesis of the film.

Beautiful video.
I swear my own books change shelves while I sleep and then go back to their original places.
Sincerely,
Sleepless on Page 49

Happy New Year Megan! Outstanding video, reminds me I need to re-watch my 'Wallace and Grommit' dvds.

Here's to a great year!

Dear Sleepless
I think you're onto something. Books are little worlds of their own. It's surprising they don't just move out entirely.
Happy New Year to you, Lee Rae! Delighted to see your comment. I've never watched Wallace and Grommit. Something tells me I should!
