An accordion book for an international exhibition in the USA

This series of pictures shows the process I used to make this little accordion book. It left for the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center in Michigan. It will be part of an international exhibition taking place there from April 9 to June 18, 2021.

Each year, the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center (KBAC) sponsors a non-juried exhibition The Illustrated Accordion, presented at the KBAC Gallery in late spring. Open to all emerging and established artists, this exhibition focuses on books created in accordion form.
