PAPER PEEPSHOW



Paper peepshows are like pocket-sized stage sets unfolding before your eyes. Made from layered paper panels, complete with action-packed scenes, they expand to create an illusion of depth and reveal a miniature world.


The peepshow construction is simpler than it looks, but you will need a craft knife or scalpel for precise paper-cutting.


Make sure your printer settings are set to 100%. You can print the templates directly on to your mid-weight paper if your printer allows. Why not try sourcing your own imagery to create a unique personalised scene?







This early example was published in 1825. As the viewer peeps through the branches of a tree, a country scene unfolds, dotted with shepherds and their sheep. The eye is led towards the back panel, revealing a large country house, with ladies rowing across a nearby stream.
