ARTIST BRINGS BOOK COVERS TO LIFE IN GIF SERIES

Chilean art director Javier Jensen’s took a break from his day job as art director in a publicity firm in Santiago de Chile to create to these GIFs, bringing the cover of some of the most loved works of literature to life with the slightest of movements.

These eye-catching GIFs are surely an enticing way to grab a reader and thrust them into a good story.  His homage spans the genres with across the board picks from JRR Tolkien’s fantasy adventure The Hobbit to that beloved Dr. Seuss children’s classic Green Eggs and Ham…

“I wanted to go back to the books that made us live, dream and believe in different things and reflect what I always imagined when I looked at their covers.”

Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover?
