Peep Show Bookbinding
Ages: 16 - No Limit
In this workshop, you will learn to create a tunnel or 'peepshow' book. Dating back to the 18th century, these playful books were originally created to mimic theatrical stages. This sculptural book structure sets a stage by creating expanding layers or scenes. The openings in each page allow the viewer to see through the entire book to the back and is a great introduction to 3-dimensional book structures. Basic materials will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring postcards, drawings, prints, photographs or other collage material that they would like to cut up and incorporate in their books. Our tunnel books will be 4 inches tall and 6 inches wide with up to six panels.
