Don't miss: A bookstore comes alive [video]

January 10, 2012 |  9:49 am

If you had been walking through the streets of Toronto late at night not too long ago, you might have seen sleepy volunteers in a brightly-lighted bookstore. That was Type Books, and the crowd and a camera had been brought there by Sean Ohlenkamp, an artist, creative director and animator. He and his wife Lisa, who helped create the video, appreciate print books.

In the video, the books in the bookstore come alive: they move, turn themselves upside-down, rearrange by color, circulate, stack, even read. And dance.

Could a Kindle, Nook or iPad be so charming?
