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.

Wishing you a happy new year !

A brand new year to start off on the right foot,
Go further,
See things differently,
Dream of elsewhere,
Be creative,
Write new stories,
Change your mind,
Have a break,
Take care of yourself,
Taste simple pleasures,
Savour every moment …
My best wishes for a healthy, sweet and quiet year 2021.
