3-D Postcard Buildings
‘Build Your Own’ is a series of postcards published by Wurlington Brothers Press which can be cut and assembled into miniature paper models of prominent Chicago and NYC landmarks. According to their website, “We look for some of the spirit, if not the complexity, of the beautiful "Micromodels" designed by Geoffrey Heighway in the 1950s.” The postcards measure 4-5/8" x 6-3/4" and include everything necessary to make one model. Each card includes a short description of the landmark itself. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams on the front of the cards.
