Conceived by Droga5 London, this global campaign for Amazon Books is designed to enchant the world with books and the unique relationship we have with them, especially as people devote more and more time to streaming and scrolling. Across different countries and generations, reading is something that has always facilitated understanding and connection. It’s a shared habit that many--if not most--wish to cultivate.

Directed by Tom Noakes via PRETTYBIRD UK, this anthem campaign video, “That Reading Feeling Awaits,” depicts what readers experience when they are engrossed in a book. Jumping through five different scenes, the film brings to life distinct book genres through a plethora of mix-media styles. Stitched together, the film glides through a cross-section of people, places and feelings with the help of such shops as Black Kite Studios, Virtual Films, Jimmy Grimes Puppetry, Future Power Station and Studio AKA.
