That's quite lovely.

My favorite art/no words book was this Edward Gorey book I had that would accordion out into a long hallway in which you could see all sorts of Victorian creepy Edward Gorey things happening in.

Of course I was looking at it once an destroyed it with a glass of wine.  Can't even remember the title and I've never seen it anywhere since.  Of course given that is popup books sell for the hundreds the thing was probably worth a small fortune.

Oh well, I'll always have my vague memories.

Cool.  Would last about three minutes in the hands of your five-year-old, but cool.

That was cute, but I liked this piece of performance art a lot more.

I've never read an entire book via Youtube before, never mind one that thick.

Years ago I acquired one of my favorite books as a kid, all the pages are cut in half, so you can flip the top and bottom independently. Magical Changes by Graham Oakley. It's still in print but called "512" (the number of possible scenes).  Always liked the combo chosen for the back cover. Sleep tight and sweet dreams, kiddos!

That was pretty cool, but hardly the most coolest damn thing I've ever seen. I'm not sure it'd warrant an amazing tag either if we had one.

The Tunnel Calamity.  I think it is safe to describe it as "a collector's item".
Gorey's art is amazing.  I like that he made it both intellectually accessible and easily available.

Subby's find is very cool.  The artist has a neat vision.

Then by all means make your own. I have an Illustration degree from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, trained at the Disney Animation program in Florida and have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for almost 20 years now and I looked at those and was amazed. The intricacy and planning alone was enough to blow my mind but hey, what the hell do I know. :)
