While I was visiting North Yorkshire Calligraphers, Ruth Rowland showed me a dear little book she had made. (There are two Ruth Rowlands in the calligraphy world. Northern Ruth R. was on my course one weekend and Southern Ruth R. was at Cinque Ports Scribes the following weekend)
And here is the back.
Well done Ruth! If anyone local is reading this blog and they are interested I noticed that Paul Johnson is running a workshop at Ardington School of Craft on the 18th June, as follows: The tunnel book fascinated the Victorians and is still one of the most popular pop-up books today. On this workshop we will make a garden in which layers of scenery are viewed through a proscenium arch, as in a theatre. A special feature is that the construction is made from single pieces of paper joined with dovetail hinges and interlocking units – there are no folds. There is a second, different workshop on the 19th June
