This unique and brilliant accordion book opens up in two directions to reveal a street scene during the day and night. A window may serve as a source of light and fresh air, but it also presents a view onto the life of a street and its many other windows, each a separate scene of its own, with its multitude of on-going stories developing before your eyes. Within those windows, you can witness the lives of single people, couples, families, stories of love, separation and maybe even murder!
"Vivid, Invitingly beguiling . . .There is a refreshing quality to this illustrated presentation that invites the viewer to ruminate over the actions of the players and to question the intentions of the participants. The stories can be viewed as morning events when read in one direction, whereas the opposite route portrays the evening proceedings. A range of emotions seem to foment as the viewer writes a script for the activities depending on the interpretation--is there love or hate, innocence or crime, fun or mischief?" --Aron Row, "San Francisco Book Review"
