The Travelers are book objects with unique drawings that are viewed through the windows on the top panels and are moved by sliding the unfolded drawing through the case. The viewer travels through imaginary landscapes as if in a moving vehicle, viewing an ever changing horizon
The journey starts in a wooded area, moves over land, mountains, and into the sea, passes an island and comes to rest on a shore.
If desired,journeys can be viewed in reverse.
The continuous images for Travelers were drawn directly on the scrolls without preparatory studies or photographic reference.
