Passageway to Visual Delights
I’ve always loved peeking into a snow globe scene. Imagine breaking down a scene, similar to a layered background scene for a theatre production – but in a book…Voila! The Tunnel Book! The viewer looks through a series of panels, connected by concertinas, which expand to show more of a scene. The openings for the first panel can start off wide gradually getting smaller or the cut out opening can stay a consistent size focusing on different sections of the panel.
Last month, I took a Tunnel Book workshop with Alice Austin, a local Philly printer and book artist, through the Guild of Book Workers.
Check out what my fellow book artists from the workshop created!
