This book structure is a dynamic concertina that will wow the viewer. Sewn to ribbons and a concertina and then pamphlets, the pamphlets collapse when you are through reading them and the ribbons are pulled shut. Keith Smith describes this as an Eastern fold book known as a spine-pleat. This specific structure is based on a variation of the spine-pleat inspired by Kumi Korf’s work.
