Tunnel books are like small theaters similar to the shoebox dioramas children make in school. Through your own illustrations or images cut from magazines or other source material, you will learn how to create a unique 3-Dimensional world about the size of a postcard. You will discuss variations of the form and ways to incorporate the theatre into a folder or case. At the end of your two-hours you will leave with a model that can serve as a base for a final finished book, or as reference for future work.
