A brilliant homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, this unique accordion book, which opens in two directions, provides a series of 20 tableaux of a street scene as it evolves across a single day and night. Providing a multitude of ongoing stories that develop across both sides of the book, readers witness the lives of single people, couples, and families as well as stories of love, separation, and possibly even murder.

Praise For Street View

"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
