The End of Mr Y – deconstructingbookshelves

For the final degree piece I have produced the Title Sequence inspired by a book The End of Mr Y written by Scarlet Thomas. The story line is about a cursed book.

The book is written by nineteenth-century scientist Thomas Lumas and contain a recipe which reveals how to get into a wonderland called Troposphere. The main character, Ariel Manto, finds a book, reaads it and discovers that it shows a way to travel to a different reality where one can enter minds of others. Her journey begins...

Well, the story did seem interesting at first… Ariel Manto, a young PhD student joins professor Saul Burlem to conduct research on the extraordinary 19th century writer Thomas Lumas and his supposedly cursed book, The End of Mr. Y. But neither Burlem nor Ariel have a copy of the book which is so rare that there is only one known copy left in the world. On top of that, professor Burlem soon disappears, and Ariel is left doing some teaching at his college. One day though by sheer accident she discovers a copy of The End of Mr Y in a second-hand book shop… It is now time to find out whether the book is really cursed and find Burlem…
