Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Vulpes Randoms

We’ve been discussing in the den the idea of posting up random instant visual, quirky or just interesting things on the site on unscheduled days.

To kick us off, here is a lovely short film by Tony Donoghue which has just won Best Animated Short at Sundance. It’s called Irish Folk Furniture but it’s more about people and the past and lives and change.  Just click the link and see what you think. Here is a bit of info through the Irish Times and I’m now going to attempt a video link…which I’ve not tried before so wish me luck!

    Bliss. What a gorgeous film. I love seeing the slow stop-motion filming, i want to know how they do that! Beautifully lit and coloured, and just lovely.

    Glad you enjoyed this. I thought it was really great and somehow quite suited VL – not sure why. I like the fact there is so much so of unsaid in it too. And the chickens!

    What an absolute treat this was – and totally random. Thanks!
