Books that Animate

Last post I mentioned again the Alice App. This morning on boing boing, video from the Smithsonian of The Animated Circus Book.

I'd love to see more of these. In fact, there is a project in old books with movable parts and how readily they lend themselves to contemporary technology. After all, the movable parts aimed at imitating life, the very cornerstone of animation, which is what we see on film and now on applications like Alice. The medias are not in competition. They're striving for the same kind of effects.
