The "carousel" or "star" book is a multi-layered accordion book that challenges binders and artists to design three dimensionally. It can be viewed section by section and also opened fully to create a book in the round.
This book format was first produced in the 1930’s, mainly for souvenirs or novelties and children’s books.
This workshop will introduce the methods for constructing an accordion book, folded to create layered stage-like pages. These pages are perfect for developing with imagery around a theme or text.
