When it comes to thinking up a way for the New York Times to show off their holiday books review, I’ll be damned if there’s anything better than an animated clip by Johnny Kelly of tiny little books dancing along to a plinky-plonk tune. It does get better, though, because as the all seeing camera slowly zooms out your realise that each little dancing book is a part of the next one’s cover! Meta-madness!
This super neat animation is just one more feather in Johnny’s already very well-decorated cap; since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2008 he has won a sprinkling of prizes and made animations for clients from Salvation Army and the V&A to Youtube. Yessir, there’s no stopping him; and with little characters like these ones jumping from his fingertips it’s hard to imagine that anybody would want to try.
