Unlike illustration books we find on bookshelves today, The Adventures of a Village moves the plot along by having readers unfold certain corners of the narrative origami. It might look like a flat poster with snow-capped buildings and intersecting train tracks, but upon closer inspection, you will find a labyrinth of creases that can be flipped and flopped to change the illustration.
Hidden behind the triangular “pages” are floating UFOs and a black-and-white hot air balloon. The book lets readers explore their own imaginations and wit to create an elaborate storyline.
The video below lets you follow along the picture-perfect journey, enjoy!
