SHAUN SMITH'S SUNDAY SUNDRIES

A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Poemotion
Here's a video of one of the coolest books I've seen in a long time: Poemotion by Takahiro Kurashima. It is a very simple form of animation, that uses printed patterns viewed through a scree that you slide across the page. Sorry, that doesn't do it justice.

Crafty
Got some old books? There's a new book out about how to destroy them, and make some art (or at least craft) in the process. All is explained by video, of course.

Dull
What is with these long, dull, meditative articles about Amazon that we keep seeing? It is a department store online, people. Get past it.

Merde
Scaring the crap out of French kids, with books.

Subway
These photos looks suspiciously posed, but apparently they are real people reading real books in the real New York Subway. Next question, why do we need a website devoted to them?

Comic
"Behind every great novelist is..." This comic applies to some not-so-great novelists as well, and it is frankly just a bit too familiar. (c/o CasOpt)
