Tunnel Book Workshop at V&A

In this one-day workshop I led at the V&A Museum this weekend, participants created some wonderful tunnel books, inspired by engravings in the V&A's Collection. 
We were given an introductory talk by the Collection's Curator on the V&A's new acquisition of tunnel books (otherwise known as 'paper peepshows').
If you're interested in making paper peepshows or learning about their history, there is a great resource book available from the V&A shop titled 'Paper Peepshows'.
