Moving Book Covers

Spike Jonze collaborated with Olympia Le-Tan on a  fun short film called Mourir Auprès de Toi. What makes it relevant here is that it's set in an old bookstore, and features embroidered stop-motion animation of Le-Tan’s illustrations of iconic first-edition book covers. Books come to life! Ah - a nerd's dream.

As an aside, I hope that e-books and kindles won't ruin the art of the book cover. I've always been a sucker for good cover art!
