More Information on this Workshop

A tunnel book (aka peepshow book) is a historical book form that evolved in the 19th century from perspective box-like devices with viewing holes that entertained the eye and the mind. These devices were made from parallel layers of paper that bellow out and create a multi-dimensional scene when viewed from the front. Tunnel books combined learning and entertaining with play and often astonished, educated and delighted! The basic overlapping of layers creates a complex design enhanced by light and shadow. In this workshop, participants will learn the basic anatomy of a tunnel book and how to create their own using illustrations, photos, magazines, colored paper or whatever you are comfortable with. Basic pop-up paper engineering elements will be introduced to enhance your tunnel books. Colette will also discuss related movable book forms like accordion and carousel books. Do not worry if you are mathematically challenged, all levels welcome!
