A wonderful book and a gift from my best reader -  @devilsbookstory

 

Ohh, these gorgeous illustrations by William Joyce - @heybilljoyce I'm delighted! The events of the book take place in New Orleans.

 

 

This story is about a man who found a wonderful place with flying books. All these books could think about was only one thing - someone reading them... For me, the story is a little bit sad and philosophical. Reading it you can find many different metaphors associated with real life. For example, these flying books may represent real people whose stories we "read" and remember them throughout our life...

 

 

As I understand, the animated short film was made first and then the book was written. Anyway, the both are worth your attention!
