Sophie Arnold, The Kiss, New York City, 2016

I have not been able to find any information about this accordion/leporello. With its repeated image of a young man with two kisses on his face, coupled with the delicate covers and the red ribbon, it has the nostalgic feel of an album devoted to a lost, or unattainable, love. Or, it just could be, a masterly gender reversal of the 'traditional' definition of leporello, which traces the term to Don Juan's manservant, Leporello, who kept a folded list of his masters' conquests!

12 pages at 3.25"(h) x 2.5"(w). Fully opened at 30".
