Books on Film: The Best Book-Related Video of the Year

There have been some great book-related videos this year, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one to top Much Better Now, an animated stop-motion short from Portuguese film studio Salon Alpin. Looking at their website, it’s been getting some attention at international film festivals this year.

I don’t have much to add, other than it’s about a bookmark, it’s incredible, and you should watch all the way to the winsome ending. It had me hoping that the days of physical books never come to an end.

Six minutes well-spent.
