This beautiful hand marbled paper makes this mini book extra special.
It's a book. It's a dioarama! It's both! In this class you'll make both a maquette and a completed tunnel book. Tunnel books are single sheets bound on both edges with accordion folds. This book folds flat but expands into a 3D scene. From wikipedia:
Openings in each page allow the viewer to see through the entire book to the back, and images on each page work together to create a dimensional scene inside. This type of book dates from the mid-18th century and was inspired by theatrical stage sets. Traditionally, these books were often created to commemorate special events or sold as souvenirs of tourist attractions. The term "tunnel book" derives from the fact that many of these books were made to commemorate the building of the tunnel under the Thames River in London in the mid-19th century.
