Behind the Scenes at The V&A Museum, viewing their recent acquisition of Paper Peepshows from The Gestetner Collection

In preparation for an upcoming workshop at the V&A (details to come soon), 
I visited the V&A's new collection of Paper Peepshows (or Tunnel Books) as they are also called. 
These wonderful peepshows in the photographs below date from 1840-1860, 
when these books were very popular as souvenirs or mementos to mark a special occasion.
