In April 2020, animator Henning M. Lederer launched his project “Books & Sleeves”, in which he transforms abstract geometric patterns, which are all found on old book covers and records, into fascinating moving images. Above you can watch the second part of the project, which does not disappoint.
We also featured more in the past Lederer’s creative work ranges from animations of minimalist mid-century book covers and history books on psychology and philosophy to a 1926 lithograph animation that famously depicts the human body as a modern factory. Be sure to give them all a watch.
