When you open an old book you get a whiff of more than its contents. There’s the smell of old times, the feel of the once familiar. This playful book page animation uses various techniques to make grandfather’s notes come alive. Practical tips on popular courting in the Polish-Byelorussian border region. We learn that the young people were too shy to talk for themselves, but that the rules were clear. How complicated the world is today.
