Vintage book covers spring to life via hypnotic, geometric animations
In his Covers series, the German animator Henning M Lederer envisions a world where classic book covers spring to spectacular and satisfyingly geometric life. Lederer’s third instalment, Even More Covers, features midcentury editions of philosophy, science and logic classics, including Plato’s Republic, Karl Popper’s The Logic of Scientific Discovery (1934), and R D Laing’s The Divided Self (1960), alongside a wide array of textbooks. With appropriately minimalist music by Tilman Grundig to accompany the twisting and spinning of the sparse designs, the viewing experience is perhaps even easier to get lost in than a good read.
