The Old Man and the Sea, Animated in Hand-Drawn Stop-Motion

“Perhaps I should not have been a fisherman, he thought. But that was the thing that I was born for.”

From German photographer and designer Marcel Schindler comes the best adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea since that Russian father-and-son duo’s animation finger-painted on glass — a lovely hand-illustrated stop-motion in a style reminiscent of Flash Rosenberg’s and the now-classic RSA animations, and a worthy addition to the finest literary art projects.
