In addition to large-format color photos, the exhibition includes several models built by Wick and his team which serve as the photographic illustrations in his books. One of Wick's most recent books, Can You See What I See on a Scary, Scary Night?, includes models and illustrations inspired in part by the Walters' Chamber of Wonders.
