The Real Concertina Binding 2001. 7"x7"x7". Peter's dad bought
this concertina in England. It was pretty, but wasn't a very good an instrument
and so he gave it to us for a book project. We cut the bellows open on five
sides, leaving one side of the hexagon attached to make an accordion pleat
spine. The pages were then sewn into the spine. The text, a previously unpublished
collection of limericks about the concertina, was hand lettered and painted
by Donna on Peter's handmade paper. Unique Book.. $1400.
See below for sample limericks, but remember, by definition limericks are off color bits of rhyming.
There was a bold woman from Lock Ness
Who played concertina topless.
Her two bountiful fellows
Got pinched in the bellows
Which caused her to play more... and not less!
A man taught his pet Pekinese
To play tunes on concertina keys.
He got notes on the draw
Just my using his paw...
All that came out on the squeeze were some fleas.
