Fernando Lopes, Flag Book: Interaction towards a better world, Atlanta: Nexus Press, 1996
This book is an example of a "diamond fold" accordion, and here Lopes has incorporated 96 triangular pieces of flags from different countries who were competing in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. His hope for 'interaction' and maybe the disappearance of flags altogether is well taken. Each page 4" (h) x 4" (w), open 3ft 3".
