Pop-Up Book Lets You Animate Its Illustrations With A Vintage Technique (video)

1Here’s a book which combines aspects of pop-up books and interactive ebook apps.

Milan-based filmmaker Virgilio Villoresi has collaborated with illustrator Virginia Mori to create a paper book which uses vintage pre-cinema animation techniques to tell a story.

The book is called Vento, and if you like you can think of the book as a collection of proto-GIFs, only on paper. It lets the reader construct and deconstruct the story through time. There’s no text, just images, and each image tells its own story, letting readers make their own connections through the narrative.

You can see the effects in the trailer below, and you can buy the book from, well, no where. It is sold out.
