“This book was originally made for the Wizard of Oz Society. It tells the story in one continuous illustration (follow the Yellow Brick Road!) that is folded as an eight panel accordion. We chose to use our nested accordion binding to complement the theme of movement in the story, from the flying house to the flying monkeys, and the cloth binding material was inspired by Dorothy's gingham dress.”
