I may not be handsome or rich like my namesake, but I like to think I’m at least a little bit clever. Love at first page, Day 2 of the February challenge by @journaling-junkie. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce is an illustrated short story and one of the most beautiful and touching stories I have ever read. I think everyone should read it.

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore - 2012 yılında en iyi kısa animasyon film ödülünü almış olan bu film her kitap sever mutlaka izlemeli :)

Was “The Artist” the only silent film to win an Oscar in 2012? As a matter of a fact, no!

The beautiful and gently comic short film “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore” was a very worthy winner of the Best Animated Short award, and the inspiration of the silent era and early sound era can clearly be felt.

Here it is, in its entirety. Enjoy!
