More Mesmerizing Mid-century Motion

In 2015 German animator Henning M. Lederer scored a cult hit with his hypnotic animated short “Covers” by infusing 55 mid-century book designs with motion.

His sequel, imaginatively called “More Covers,” expands the exercise with 36 additional publications.

Lederer reveals the source for all the original vintage book covers is the Instagram account of Julian Montague, an artist/designer/illustrator based in Buffalo, NY.
