Enter Another Dimension
Step into six of the most captivating cities in Italy when you open this sculptural star. Tied open with ribbons, the volume instantly transforms to an in-the-round showcase of six scenes. Five hidden panels glide out smoothly between each vignette to flag a brief history of every scenic vista. Closed, the eye-catching front cover features a miniature 3-D insert that echoes the full-size pop-up perspective of Florence revealed inside the album.

Designed for shelf storage with your traditional library, the modified concertina features tan cloth-covered boards. Six city scapes painted in watercolor with pen and ink were each designed for full color reproduction. Details of Rome, Florence, Siena, Pisa, Venice and Vernazza open in four hand cut layers. Prose on one side of the pull out panels outlines the significance of each site. Versos detail the edition's inception along with the title page and a colophon numbered and signed by both the artist and binder.
