6dreams, editor Roger Omar, Valencia, Spain

Roger Omar has just sent me three new works in this wonderful series of accordions that illustrate dreams by children from around the world.  See this blog's posting of a whole bunch of them here: 6dreams, editor Roger Omar

This is a really beautiful and well thought out accordion project initiated in 2002 by Roger Omar, which combines a really sharp conceptual framework, matched with a fresh formal design and presentation. 

At the present time there are approximately 38 accordions in this "6dreams" series, and the underlying structure and theme of the individual accordions is so simple and beautifully complete. Individual accordions are designed by different illustrators, and they are based on 6 dreams as described by children between the ages of 8-10 years, most of them from Mexico and Spain, and presented in both Spanish and English.

The format and size is the same for all of these 5 page double-sided accordions: individual pages 8.25" (h) x 7.75" (w), and when fully open they are 38.75".
