“Books are meat and medicine
and flame and flight and flower
steel, stitch, cloud and clout,
and drumbeats on the air.”

Singularity&Co: Each Book…a Portal to a New Dimension

Here is a little Twilight Zone homage to Singularity&Co, a Brooklyn-based bookshop specializing in vintage science fiction, fantasy, and pulp fiction. 

The shop was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign with the goal of buying the rights to vintage titles and releasing them as CC-licensed ebooks.

The spot was written and directed by a fan of the shop, Gabriel de Urioste.

'No man should sit comfortably upon the throne'
It is meant to be an ugly, monstrous beauty. And several times during the books Joffrey cuts himself on throne.
