Mysteries of Vernacular

Website: Mysteries of Vernacular
I was recently introduced to a unique Website called, Mysteries of Vernacular. It is one of the most visual stunning videos I have ever seen. Created by Myriapod Productions, this site "contains 26 etymological installments, one for each letter of the alphabet. Each episode takes more than 80 hours (!) to create between the research, construction of the book and the animation." Click on the books on the bookshelf to see the next installment or click on the links below.
