"The Wall" a graffiti inspired accordion journal

I have finally finished up this fun accordion style journal. This is the first time I have made a book in this format, but plan to do many more. I had strayed away from accordion books in the past feeling they would be too limiting. I have learned otherwise by working on this one.


I love the way this journal flows from page to page and from front to back. This "wall" is so well suited for a graffiti style book for journaling in.

Closed, this journal measures 6" X 12" and opened up it's 4 feet across, times 2 (front and back) ... that's 8 feet of journaling goodness all together! This is a new Workshop I will be offering for 2012.

8 feet, wow! That is amazing and your right it flows so well. It reminds me of those flip-books, you know the kind that you flip the pages and the characters move, it has a flow like that. Cool.
