The Paper House

There are 6 images in this post.

My sister bought me a pop-up book not too long ago really (meaning I’m presumably too old to fall in love with a pop-up book, but we all know that’s not true). I believe I was in high school, so we’ll say 7 years ago, tentatively. It’s called “A Three-Dimensional Victorian Dollhouse” and it’s not just any pop-up book. open it, and it folds out into an entire house, filled with detailed, gorgeous illustration.

…and in book form, without being popped out

I’m not sure what I’ll inevitably do with it photo wise, but for the moment I wanted to use lighting to bring the scenes to life, while still leaving hints of the paper/pop-up construction.

  1. So of course my first though was “I wonder how that is in scale to Lego people?” It’s a sickness, really :)

    I do love the house though, great images and creative setup.

    1. Haha hmm. Good thought though. I think it might be a tad big for lego people, without having it in front of me, I’d say the toilet is about 2 inches tall. Nothing wrong with having an oversized house though :P

      Thank you so much. On another note, I think lego people would fit on the swing ride in my next post quite nicely.

      1. Wheeeee! I like the swing rides too.

        I mentioned to M about trying to do more actual staged pics with our collection. Gonna have to be camera phone only for a while still, but we shall see :)

  2. I love how you played with the light. It feels as if there is someone with a flashlight searching the next room. Or it it the aura of a long dead person who once lived there? Eerie.
