Books are my curent fascination… funny that i should find this beautiful piece of film/art!


When i was in my mid 20’s i worked in a bookstore in San Franicsco for a year.  This was one of the MOST labor intensive job i have ever had (to give you an idea, i lost 40 lbs in that year just shelving, moving and walking with all those books.  our bookstore was 2 large floors too.).  It was, as far as all the jobs that were just “side” jobs, meaning out of my career field (at that time it was makeup), it was far and away the most interesting, most memorable, and most satisfying (not the paycheck but i didnt care at that time.) job i have ever had.

So, when i saw this on youtube, i instantly appreciated the work as well as adored the beauty this husband and wife artist team (with the help of over a dozen volunteers working every night, all night, for a few weeks in a Toronto bookstore) created.  It is beautiful, fun, artistic, clever and clean.  I wish i could say i made something so worthy of an Oscar!  Bravo.  Enjoy!

ps.  a footnote that i just thought great, is that, everything seen in this film is actually for sale at Type bookstore in Toronto, where this was filmed.

About bluepearlgirl's world

Hello. My actual name is Emelie. I am an artist in San Francisco. I started out my early life deep in the Santa Cruz mountains. I left Santa Cruz shortly after graduating High School in 1992 and moved up to the city. I have been in sf ever since and more specifically Bernal Hts. since 2009. I work in a number of mediums usually depending on the space i have to work in. In SF that can vary greatly! I look forward to sharing my thoughts, observations and photos with you all. Hopefully at the very least i will give you a little chuckle once and a while. Thank you for stopping and reading my little blog. I encourage all who stops by to leave comments. I will read them all and appreciate the time you spend with me! Sincerely to you all! Emelie (aka, Bluepearlgirl) To see some of my artwork, please check out www.artwanted.com/emelie ...........
