Long before the invention of printing, hand painted letter boards were widespread as teaching material in schools. ABC tablets made of wood were already mentioned in an English manuscript as early as the 14th century. Later a thin, transparent horn plate was used to protect the paper glued on the board against wear and dirt.

This is why up to this day letter boards are still called “horn books” in English-speaking regions, even though they are not books in the conventional sense of the word. The short film The Alphabet 2 – dubbed a “horn book video experiment” – visualises concepts and objects referring to the letters of the alphabet.

Some graphic design history aside, it’s an interesting video that uses a variety of techniques, including stop motion and cell animation. Also some interesting witticisms and visual puns.

Well worth a watch!

I'm Comic Sans, Asshole from joehollier on Vimeo.

While I am not crazy about the foul language in this stop animation, I am completely in love with the fact that Comic Sans fights back. The last sentence made me laugh out loud. Hat tip to Joe Hollier, who by the way also created this amazing stop animation called My Visual Diary. I’m Comic Sans, A**hole (via swissmiss | Comic Sans Fighting Back)

To make the insanity, Livesey created a colorful log of plasticine containing geometric forms and patterns. He then sliced away two-millimeter pieces, photographing the inside and moving the camera two millimeters closer as he went along. “The process completely bends your mind,” the artist says. “It’s like making a whole load of little “prizes” that set off once you slice through it.” (via Nicos Livesey’s Insane Stop-Motion Videos Use Colored Clay | Co.Design)
