Leporello #12-22, Arena-Dottir, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2009

the boxed set

A boxed set of 11 accordions/leporellos published by Leporello a marketing agency based in Copenhagen with each work being a collaboration between members of the Danish art and literary scenes. Although I could find no further information about these collaborations, I'm assuming the visual artists did the front and a writer contributed the texts that are typically on the reverse side. I have previously reviewed the first edition of this publication featuring #1-11 (2005) [see: Thomas Seest (ed), Leporello #1 - 11].

For more information about Leporello ("Leporello Business Solutions, We call it B.S. for a reason"), see: leporello.dk

The leporellos address all sorts of different subject matter, however I was not able to understand the Danish texts, so for me I could only experience the visual aspect of each accordion and their quality seemed to fluctuate somewhat. Nevertheless, this is a worthy project and anything that promotes collaboration between different sectors of the art community interests me!

Each accordion is comprised of 12 double-side pages, with individual pages measuring 4" x 3", and when fully opened the leporellos are 3 feet long.
