The Last Bookshop

The Last Bookshop imagines a future where physical books have died out. 

One day, a small boy’s holographic entertainment fails, so he heads out to explore the streets of abandoned shops outside. Down a forgotten alley he discovers the last ever bookshop. And inside, an ancient shopkeeper has been waiting over 25 years for a customer…” (YouTube)

A wonderful short film, The Last Bookshop extols the wonders of books over technology. It’s poignant yet hopeful and uplifting. It clearly shows the thrill of entering an old bookshop and discovering what treasures are hidden within. The boy experiences a whole new perspective of life, which only books can provide, especially the touch and the smell. The extra twist with the money and the register is neat as well.

There have always been stories. Onwards!
