Rainy Paris Street: a tunnel experiment

Cindy Tonkin - July 11, 2016

Part 2 of my experiment with postcards of impressionist works from the Institute of Art in Chicago
A tunnel book, done with a postcard from Caillebotte’s Paris Street Rainy Day.
The soft greys of this picture were hard to manage.
I think i made the gussets too long (7cmx2cm), but when you hold it up to your face some interesting things happen with the perspective.
Measures 14 x 12cm.
gussets from a Mariano’s brown paper shopping bag.
Card is from good and plenty and rice bubbles packs. Covered with pages from America Dances (1927)

Front page is just an off-centre door. I added handles from a paper shopping bag.
I prefer the look of the print and the brown paper to some of the interior!
