Below find two video projects from Henning Lederer, taking vintage textbooks and animating the graphics on their covers. The end results are hypnotic, and probably would have been a detriment to actual study. Still, if one was enrolled in Hogwarts, I assume one would eventually get used to such things.

1 Thought on "Hypnotically Animated Textbook Covers"

Animated gifs are great for amazing animated book covers. Think if you stumbled on one of these during a casual peruse on Amazon. Your finger would race to the buy button. Sadly Amazon and other etailers accept only static JPEG files (and maybe PNG). Such a missed opportunity.
