The Joy of Books

Artists/designers Sean Ohlenkamp and Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp—the same folks who brought you “Organizing the Bookshelf” —have teamed up again to create another exuberant video, “The Joy of Books”. Writes Ohlenkamp:

After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago (, my wife and I decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto.

Here’s the result, in which books dance their way around a bookshop after it closes for the night. Enjoy!

(My favorite part? The Moleskine carefully turning the pages of the larger book. Adorable!)
