Motion Silhouette Book

shadow_125Amazing. Simply amazing. Shortly after viewing the brief video below we were overcome with the beauty and delicacy embodied by this pop-up children’s book. Motion Silhouette, by Megumi Kajiwara and Tathuhiko Nijima, is made to order by hand (!) and features delicately cut pop-up elements whose shadows interact with the rest of the book, furthering the tale being told. Bonus points to them for using a smartphone to interact with the book in a simple-but-unexpected way.

And here is how it was made:

    This book is great piece of art that honors other kinds of art. Is a beautiful way to write poetry.
    Thank you for this blessing.
    I found it some years ago, on the internet, by chance anda I’m trying to buy it for a long time without sucess.
    I live in Portugal.
    But I’ll not give up.

    Thank you, once more, for this precious piece.
