Neil Gaiman

In 1989, author Neil Gaiman wrote a short story called Nicholas Was… for his Christmas card, which contained calligraphy by Gaiman’s frequent collaborator artist Dave McKean.

Now, Vimeo user nomsa has made a pop-up book out of the 100-word story and set it to music on a video, which you can watch here below.

Nicholas Was… is now part of the author’s popular short-story collection, Smoke and Mirrors. Gaiman talked about the Nicholas Was… Christmas card last year on his blog. The entire 100-word tale is actually online here as well.

In 2002, Dark Horse Comics put out a set of 6 Nicholas Was Christmas Cards illustrated by Michael Zulli. Those are still available now from TFAW for only $6.99.
