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.IMG_3016 IMG_3036 IMG_3045 IMG_3063 IMG_3065 IMG_3066 IMG_3076 IMG_3080 IMG_3100 IMG_3104 IMG_3114 IMG_3115 IMG_3119 IMG_3120 IMG_3134 IMG_3155
