This is an accordion book made for an upcoming collaborative project. The paper is the watercolor paper I picked up at the supply swap at Handmade Philly's Artbeat event last month. I keep meaning to get back into doing sewn bindings, but I keep making accordions since they are so perfect for collaborations. It's cool that images can continue from one page to another, and that you can continue onto the back side. It also holds up well to lots of collaged layers being added, since there is no binding it expands well.
I already started drawing in this book. It's an imaginary map drawing. I recently saw the Galileo exhibit at the Franklin Institute, which was so inspirational- all those fantastic old maps and navigation equipment!
