It's A Small World

Some postcards of the model village at Bourton on the Water, Gloucester, an exact 1/9th scale replica of the real village of Bourton on the Water. The model gets full marks for verisimilitude, but a ‘must try harder’ in terms of imagination.

Why copy conventional brown and grey structures when you can use the same skills to create an exciting Utopia full of colour and fairs and bits that move?  Even the most innovative element, the slightly mind boggling village’s model village’s model village, is disappointing - merely a smaller and even less exciting version of something already small and undistinguished.  It’s all a bit boring, I’m afraid.
