Why did you make this work:
The tunnel book was designed for DFRG Press as part of a set of a collection of Shakespeare's works. The “tunnel” shape, a book form with strong ties to the theater set-ups, gives the scenes a three-dimensional effect and allows me to obtaining a narrative effect that develops into a single image.

How was the illustration used:
