Here's what the books do in Toronto's Type bookstore while you're sleeping

Here is a beautiful video done by the people who run Type Books – a great bookstore in Toronto.

If you’ve ever wondered what all those stories get up to at night, click through to see a page turning ballet. It took many volunteers and a painstaking way of shooting, but the results are really fantastic.

From the video’s creator:

After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago (http://youtu.be/zhRT-PM7vpA), my wife and I decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto. Everything you see here can be purchased at Type Books. Grayson Matthews generously composed the beautiful, custom music. But none of it could have been done without all the volunteer hands who shelved and reshelved books all night, every night. A special thanks goes out to:
