The Inner Workings of Accordions Explained
In this art book, The Inner Workings of Accordions Explained, Erika Spreiser takes a whimsical approach to the explanation of how accordions work, noting that the sounds produced are because accordions are home to ghosts. The book is folded in accordion style — to mimic an actual accordion — with blue cloth-bound board covers. The inner pages are bordered in black and illustrated with ghosts and other figures, with text on the left-hand page of the two-page spread and the illustrations on the right. The opposite side of the accordion fold is red and illustrated with opaque, white ghost silhouettes. The book is signed and numbered edition 3 of 5 by Erika Spreiser.
