Music Box

logoAMANDA CARYE, '07 | Honorable Mention
Music Box with George Eliot text: Letterpress text on accordion style binding, enclosed in matching box

"This 'music box' combines both letterpress and bookbinding. The text is set in an accordion style binding technique that uses a paper hinge to connect two separate sheets of paper (allowing for cutouts as I have done to set the text). The creation of the box was also learned in the Book Arts Workshop and is a perfect case for the accordion book. The text is a quote from one of my favorite authors, George Eliot, and perfectly describes what music is for me."
