Inspired by the poem "An Anna Blume," written in 1919 by German artist Kurt Schwitters, this short film by Vessela Dantcheva explores the ways in which "lust and ingestion, disguised in love, drive the two characters to an end where love turns to be a very lonesome and strange place."

Back in January we posted William Joyce and Branden Oldenburg's animated short film, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessermore. Now there's an interactive app that appears to capture all the magic and fascination of that beautiful story "of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor."
