Myriorama: A collection of Many Thousand Landscapes

Type Party Game

An 1820's parlor game

More details


In the 1820's, artist John Heaviside Clark and London publisher Samuel Lehigh designed this sixteen panel Myriorama (a myriad of pictures producing a panorama). Clark painted images of the British countryside including boats, cottages and ruins. The panels were designed so that no matter the order, they always fit together.

A favorite in parlors and drawing rooms of the time, we have it here for you to enjoy. Arrange panels to make a scene or tell a story. Enjoy the clothing and look of the countryside at that time. And watch out for the guy in the blue coat. The panels are numbered so you can recall a favorite scene or story. Great for all ages and a little bit of history too.

The original is at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens.
