The Marvels

The Marvels is quite possibly the most unique book that I have ever read. The first half of the book is told entirely in drawings, no text at all! This is the book trailer that presents the beginning of the book:

How cool is it to have a book trailer?! Brian Selznick is the incredibly talented author and illustrator of the book and animator of the trailer. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, there isn’t much I can add to the glorious video but to say that it’s a worthwhile read for the medium, and it’s amazing how quickly your brain processes images to form a coherent story. You race through about 200 pages of the book in no time at all.
