ORION - Concertina Star Carousel - 16th May 2021
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.
You will learn how to make:
A multi-layered accordion book, bound together to create layered stage-like pages. These pages are perfect for developing with imagery around a theme or text. Paper cut-out techniques will be introduced to illustrate your chosen narrative.
• Make a creative structure and learn to think three dimensionally
• Get creative with your chosen theme/narrative, illustrating them with layered cut-out technique to create stage like pages
