Simple Accordion Books

I’m really drawn to simple books at the moment, especially accordion structures. This is such a versatile book that is perfect for displaying both pictures and words, and can be as simple or complicated as you like. Once you master the basic structure, you can add layers (see my Triple Accordion Book), pop-ups, fold-outs or make a book within a book by stitching signatures between the folds.

Today, I’m sharing some simple hard cover accordion books that are covered with hand made botanical paper. The first is a 10-page 5″ x 7″ photo book tied with a satin ribbon.

The second is another photo book with a vellum belly band and torn muslin bow.
