When I think of Joseph Gordon-Levitt I see him in my mind's eye as Tommy from Third Rock from
Having said that, I would like to declare Joseph Gordon-Levitt a creative genius for coming up with the concept of these tiny stories and bringing so many together in the 3 volumes of The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories.
In the age of twitter where we are encouraged to carry across our thoughts in 140 characters or less, and where humans in general are enthralled and entertained by things that are shorter and shorter - Joseph Gordon-Levitt has shown that stories and books can evolve to stay in vogue. Brilliant little stories, with accompanying artwork could very well be the future of the anthology.
So far I have only read Volume i and ii, I will be ordering Volume iii shortly, I will admit that I enjoyed Volume i more than I did Volume ii. I found it to be a bit funnier - but both are really excellent volumes. The joining of a verbal submission with a illustrated submission is sheer genius - items are fabulously paired. I actually see it a bit as a more modern version of Monty Python.
If you would like to find out more about the collaboration that happens at hitRECord or would like to submit a form of artwork head over to the hitRECord website and see what else we can look forward to in the future and the latest out now is hitRECord on TV!
