Katie Ries, Trash Book, 2016

I recently visited my friend Katie Ries and her husband Steve, to check out their brand new baby (hi George!). At some point during the visit Katie, who is a Professor of Art at St. Norbert College here in De Pere, Wisconsin, and who knows very well my interest in accordion books, handed me this little bundle. There's a real spontaneity to this book and I suspect she made it soon after she knew i was going to visit them and of course the twist in the tail is the medium from which the book has been made. Despite her advice on the last page to "...throw this away," i haven't as its a cool counterpoint to all the other accordions on this blog and i hope visitors to this blog will agree!

16 pages approximately 1.5" x 1.5" each and extended 25.5".
