Carousel book

Take this circular, sculptural book for a spin! When the covers are placed back to back on a self standing book, it becomes a beautiful structure. This carousel book, also called a star book because of it's distinctive shape, consists of two nested accordion folds with cut out layers that create a series of 3D scenes. We will make one model book so that you have a reference book and we'll create one final book using your own or provided images. Because of the diorama windows, this book is great for telling a short story.

This photo is a front and top down view of two nested accordion structures that are arranged in a circle to form a star. The inside pages are covered in photos of dancers and the front has poetry surrounding cut out leaves. This structure is a Carousel book class example by Laurel Tree Bindery.
