Flying Books

Dear Readers:  

     To be sure that your day, and weekend, begins with goodwill towards paper, the printed word, and bindings that we writers treasure so much, I have attached a wonderful 2011American short animated film as a stand-in for my written Post.

     I ask that you remove all that is not life threatening for the next fifteen minutes, and breathe in the beauty of this film––  The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore––that won over a dozen film festivals, and was awarded the Best Animated Short Film at the 84th Academy Awards.  Visit Wikipedia to read on the film/story plot and inspiration.
     An official iPad app (Apple App Store) based on the film is available. A book adaptation is also available.
     Those of you with children, please gather them around, for an indoctrination of the highest order.

P. S. The little girl sitting on the stoop at the end––well, that is me. Smile.

Did you enjoy this delightful reprieve at the end of your work week?
