Accordion Book of Accordions
An accordion is a portable wind instrument with a small keyboard and free metal reeds that sound when air is forced past them by pleated bellows operated by the player. An “accordion” is also an ancient, popular and versatile book structure. Artist Richard Troncone created a visual pun by incorporating 16 different brands of the accordion as a musical instrument into a small accordion fold book, printed on both sides with illustrated paper-covered boards. Some of the instruments pictured, with names that are grandiose and musical, include the Bafetti Gran Lusso Vienna, the Serenellini Diatonic, the Muller Globglocker, the Petrosa Musette and the Baldoni Diatonic Butterfly.
