Much Better Now

This is a absolutely adorable video of a forgotten bookmark and its incredible ride through the book it is lost within. Its a beautiful depiction of the the joy one can get from reading a book,
and a simple metaphor on the adventure of life.
Find it, and its process of creation, here.
 I'm a little bit obsessed with books and bookshelves at present..
and this is just beautiful.
Take 5 minutes to watch it.

"In “Much Better Now”, the main character is a bookmark, stuck in a forgotten book, caught in a life marked by standstill in a deserted room. One day wind knocks over the book and blows the bookmark onto the table, separating them. Unfolding hands and feet, the bookmark is swept back into the pages that turn into ocean waves and the two are reunited for a journey. With a surfboard it experiences its environment in a new way – wipe-outs, washouts and nosedives connect the hero to the ocean. The bookmark enjoys the ride of its life."
