Michael Bartalos, 29 Degrees North, San Francisco: San Francisco Center for the Book, 2012, 2nd trade edition, ed. 200
A curious little 8-page accordion that illustrates a poem that references a degree of latitude shared by all the six eastward journey's described inside - mexico to morocco, india and china, to japan and hawaii. There's a fun and quirky quality to the imagery that gives this small accordion a unique charm.
8 pages at 2 7/8" x 3 6/8" and opened up 23", includes poem on translucent paper and interwoven into the first couple of pages.
