A Modern Myriopticon


Between the Cotsen Children’s Library and the Graphic Arts Collection, Princeton holds a number of original 19th century Myrioramas and Myriopticans in its vaults.

An online version has been commissioned from the contemporary illustrator Tom Gauld, in conjunction with “Sentimental Landscapes,” an exhibition of Myriopticons at the Shandy Hall Gallery in Coxwold, United Kingdom. This is the home of writer Laurence Sterne (1713-1768), author A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy, and so, a perfect location for a series of endless landscapes. Give it a try.
