The Paper City Alphabet (by Matilda)

And finally, inspired by the Paper City workshop and the exhibition ‘Tales of the City’ at the Museum in the Park last month, Matilda (who is 12) came up with a whole paper city alphabet! I’ve added some other suggestions in brackets that were also in the city…

As you can see there was some wildlife in funny places and some interesting cultural happenings in the city whilst Matilda was there! Someone even made a certain fast food restaurant with very familiar looking arches…
