Dateline Italia: While traveling in Italy, I have gotten to know Jonathan Ro-Scofield (a.k.a. Jonny Cardboard), an artist and window display designer who does extraordinary things–art–with cardboard. Yes, he can fold a box in no time flat, but he can also make incredible sculptures of wedding cakes (below), the Chicago Water Tower (bottom), the Palace of Westminster, and a huge 32 caliber snubnose special. My favorite is the precise Grand Central Terminal desk that looks so real in the photo (above) that you feel like you’re stuck in traffic waiting to merge onto Park Avenue.
