Sculptural book formats: Tunnel book

My most recent book is a sculptural book, more specifically, the tunnel book. The tunnel book straddles the definition of a book, because it doesn't really have "pages" in the normal sense that people think about about pages, you can only open up the front cover to peer through the pages, but everything is presented to the viewer at once.

With its construction, it is very much a book.
This book measures 12"x 13.5"
The images were created with a combination of 5 drypoint prints (Stonehenge paper), and colored with watercolor

Alice in Wonderland/Tea Party Movement

Accordion folds allow depth, can be pulled further to create a deeper illusion of space
