This week, I’m showing a preview of a book I am making called an accordion book. The content inside of it will be all hand drawn cat characters I made, and eventually they will all be shaded with colored pencil.
An accordion book is named after an accordion because the book folds into itself flat but can be opened up in one long strip, revealing many folios within it. The book will be sculptural, meaning it can stand up freely on a table or flat surface.
These images give you a rough idea of how this book will stand up freely. Each individual folded section is a folio, and will contain my drawings of my cat character. I will post updated pictures once the book is complete, showing the entire series of complete drawings depicting a story. Stay tuned!
