The Atlantic shows us this amazing animation which tells us one man’s journey into his grandfather’s journals. Getting a glimpse into how our grandparents live can be a thrilling experience, as we find out what it was like to live in the world decades ago.


The grandson found a cabinet packed full of journals his grandfather wrote over the years which were also filled with stunning illustrations. The journals were incredibly detailed, giving his grandson an amazing insight into his day-to-day life. His grandfather was an inventive soul, often creating wacky and odd inventions just for the sake of it!

Like his grandfather, the grandson is also an illustrator and he tells us how these colourful journals inspired him to perfect his craft and try and emulate the style and ability of his grandpa. It’s an incredibly touching story that connects three generations of artists together. We’d love to take a look at the journals as well, as it sounds like his grandfather had a fascinating life!
