Amazon Books “That Reading Feeling Awaits” by Tom Noakes and Friends

Prettybird director Tom Noakes pulls together five VFX and animation studios then pairs them with different literary genres to illustrate “the invisible magic that happens in our imaginations when we read” for Amazon Books thru Droga 5 London.

Chris Chapman, head of design at Droga5: “Reading feels so special because it’s a co-production between a book and our imagination. We wanted to show what this feels like, that while reading looks passive from the outside the feelings it creates in us are richly multi-layered.”
