The accordion book is a structure that is great for narratives, has many variations. In this workshop we will delve into this expanding and contracting world, learning 4 different ways to make an accordion book. You will learn to make a folded accordion with a wrap around cover, a combined concertina, a leporello, and a tip-folio, or 'faux accordion'. You will also learn methods for adding extra sections to books before covering, as well as options for making and attaching covers. While content will be discussed and demonstrated, if time allows, this workshop focuses mainly on structure. This course is suited for both beginners and those with some binding experience.
