Back in April 2020, animator Henning M. Lederer launched his “Books & Sleeves” project where he turns abstract geometric patterns, all featured on vintage book and record covers, into mesmerizing moving images. Above, you can watch the second installment of the project, which doesn’t disappoint.
In the past, we’ve also featured more of Lederer’s creative work–from his animations of mid-century minimalist book covers and vintage psychology and philosophy books, to his animation of a 1926 lithograph that famously portrays the human body as a modern factory. Be sure to give them all a watch.
