The History of the Accordion Book. (2011) 13 by 15 by 6 inches.

This book is made by opening the bellows of a no longer functional vnitage accordion to create an accordion book structure. The text, a history of the accordion and a history of the accordion book, has been hand calligraphed by Donna on Peter's handmade paper. The images are of accordion players that have been hand colored. This is a unique book, similar, but different to the Real Accordion Book we made in 2001. The accordion is housed in a wooden accordion case/box we made using pine boards painted to match the patina of the accordion.
