Anatomy of the Book

The accordion book is one of the oldest forms of book known to man. It’s structure is simple yet
extremely effective, this allows one to create an object as complex as a book with only two rigid
elements as covers and a single, folded piece of paper. By nature it is flexible but precise, easy to
make. In opening accordion pages you will unveil the book’s content, and see physical and
intellectual journey through its content. Much like the accordion book, the current day spine version
or bound books provide an infrastructure that helps us tie all the elements of a book together. These
were the inspiration elements that helped further our understanding into the “anatomy of the book”
and hence the “anatomy of the library”.
