|Use real books to frame an N scale scene|
She bought several old hardcover Reader's Digest books very cheaply. Firstly she very carefully cut away all of the pages so the spine and covers were left intact. Blocks of wood were inserted in between the covers with the facing edges covered in fabric. Pamela glued together the number of books she would need to frame her scene.

Of course the fun part is collecting the bits and pieces, making things, planning what will go where, and setting it all out.
What I really like about this work of Pamela's is that from one side it looks like a lineup of real books on a shelf. Turn it round and there is the secret surprise - the N scale scene!
