This is the final result of two of the amazing things we do at the Decorative Fine Arts camp at Glen Echo. We use the silk-screen prints that we’ve made along with out class mates to create a book of prints. Then we use the Marbleized Paper to cover two pieces of cardboard as our covers. The results are amazing.

Then, we swap prints with our fellow campers and keep one of our own. After we have lined them up with an extra black page for our title page we attach them all together using strips of paper and glue sticks:
After that it’s time to attach our covers:
And finally we have our completed accordion books:
