Book #213

Double-Leaved Album

Today's book is another Japanese accordion album structure. This format evolved in Japan because the Japanese papers have a "right side" and a "wrong side" - so the right side is on the front of the accordion and the wrong side is on the back of the accordion. With this double-leaved structure, the folded sheets are adhered "wrong side" to "wrong side" so that the finished accordion has the "right side" on both sides. I hope that made sense!
