'The Joy of Books' video: Books come out to play!

Posted on

The people who brought you this very cool video last year — of books arranging and re-arranging themselves on a bookshelf — have taken their love of curiously mobile tomes to a new level. In a cinematic new short, which takes on a Tim Burton- or LAIKA-esque stop-motion vibe, books come out to cavort in an empty store when the owners are away. Created by the folks at Toronto’s Type Books, hopefully the video inspires some support for independents — somehow it’d feel less magical if this dance happened after hours at Barnes & Noble, and e-books certainly don’t have these moves! Watch the video below:
