When Books Come to Life….

January 10, 2012

Ever wonder what happens to the books at the book store once all of the customers and workers are gone for the day? A friend posted this video on Facebook yesterday and it just blew me away. Sean Ohlenkamp (AKA crazedadman) and his wife plus a team of volunteers shelved and re-shelved hundreds of books night after night at Type book store in Toronto to make this whimsical stop motion piece. When I was a child, I imagined that my toys would come to life just like this when I was away from them. (Confession: I’m still not completely convinced that they didn’t). See more of Ohlenkamps fun videos here, including Cat vs. Pinata which is absolutely hilarious!
