flat out

The John Johnson Collection now includes visual puzzles, window pictures, hold-to-light works, celluloid transparencies, lift-the-flap pictures, and stand-up cutout figures. This fascinating and complex body of material has been brought to life by experts at the Bodleian Library’s Photographic Studio using a variety of special scanning techniques. Translucent hold-to-light pictures have been photographed both with and without transmitted light, allowing users of the John Johnson Collection to see hidden second images magically appear and disappear; stand-up cutout chromolithographed figures are shown both in their flat, folded state and in three dimensions.
