The Mysteries of Harris Burdick is a curious picture book by the amazing artist Chris Van Allsburg. It consists of a series of images accompanied by single sentences that, the book claims, are all that remain of books the mysterious Burdick claimed to have written before vanishing. It’s a spooky framing device for what amounts to a book of a writing prompts that are usually used in schools, but the images and statements are so strange, whimsical, and sometimes ominous that they never left the mind of artist Daniel Savage who decided to animate a few of his favorites. The result is pretty fantastic.
