7 Beloved Book Jackets Get the GIF Treatment

Regardless of how you pronounce the G, this is super cool

When Chilean artist Javier Jensen decided to take a break from his day job as an art director for a publicity firm, he wanted to channel the time into his passion for books. Through some clever artwork and GIF wizardry, Jensen took seven iconic book covers and turned them into the living, breathing worlds we always dreamed of.

From the subtlety of blinking Seuss character's eyes to the grandeur of Tolkien's soaring Great Eagles, we think these images are incredibly immersive. Check out all of the covers below. If you love them as much as we do, check out the rest of Jensen's work here.
