The Living Book

One thing I love to do is collaborate with creative people on exhibits. For the Library Company’s most recent exhibition, The Living Book : New Perspectives on Form and Function, I was given a chance to stretch my creative muscles and really bring these books to life in the Library’s first film installation on display in the main gallery. In this reel, you’ll see books that transform, books that transport, and books that surprise. It shows that a book is more than something we read, but also a playful object, a record, a tool, or a keepsake.

The Living Book, curated by Jennifer Rosner, Andrea Krupp, and Alice Austin is now open through January 5, 2018 at The Library Company of Philadelphia. To check out more about the exhibit please visit thelivingbook.librarycompany.org.

This film is a collection of stop motion animation and videos I created to highlight rare book materials from The Library Company.
