When a magical book shop closes for the evening, the books come alive to magically rearrange themselves on all of the shelves. The Joy of Books is a delightful stop-motion animation by Sean Ohlenkamp, who, with the help of lots of volunteer book wranglers, shot the short film after hours inside Toronto’s Type Books.
