Jeff VanderMeer sez, "Greg Bossert (who's actually also a World Fantasy Award finalist this year!) put together a cool animated video based on the instructional story fish in Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction."
Wonderbook is the world's first fully illustrated writing guide, with a lot of instructional text replaced with or supplemented by diagrams, art, photographs, and other images. It's also got contributions in the form of short essays by Neil Gaiman, Lev Grossman, Karen Lord, Nnedi Okorafor, David Anthony Durham, Kim Stanley Robinson, Catherynne M. Valente, etc. Also over 30 artists from around the world are included, with the majority of the art by the amazing Jeremy Zerfoss, but also folks like Charles Vess involved.
