Tatebanko is "a forgotton Japanese art of creating amazing dioramas and scenic perspective from paper." It was big beginning in the Edo period (17th Century) through the early 20th century, after which it just disappeared.The art has been revived at in a fun DIY fashion, with Hokusai and Hiroshige kits available. For order in the U.S., head to Brooklyn 5 and 10, where the kits are $10 each!
