Back to Back Accordion Book

The accordion structure is perhaps the most versatile structure in the world of bookbinding. This structure, also referred to as the concertina, displays both pictures and words in an immediate and Zen-like game of mountains and valleys.

Presenter: PSBA member Gabby Cooksey, Graduate of North Bennet Street School for Bookbinding in Boston, MA; studied at the American Academy of Bookbinding in Telluride, CO and at the Montefiascone Conservation Project in Italy.

In this workshop you will learn the basics of the accordion structure and explore several variations of the back-to-back structure which will serve as prototypes for future projects.

As a part of the PSBA Fundamentals series you can also expect to learn the fundamentals of folding, scoring and folding tools.
