Myriorama: A Collection of Many Thousand Landscapes, 1824
The story is yours for the making!
Through the idyllic countryside, across the moors of yore, amid the Gothic ruins, and down a cottage lane—no matter how you place the panels from this classic myriorama, a seamless scene awaits. Lay panels side by side to create your own landscape. They’re created in such a way that you can’t go wrong—the horizon line and foreground will always line up. Construct specific scenes with a few panels, or bring them all together to create a narrative filled with the twists and turns of country life in the early 19th century. Use the numbers on the bottoms of the panels to record and re-create your favorites. The options are nearly endless—20,922,789,888,000 arrangements in all!
