Season 2010: Bandoneon Books




My bandoneon books ar a special sort of concertina or accordion books. They are both gift and wrapping in one piece - the ribbon to make a bow is part of the book.
And of course they are completely handmade.

The very, very special thing about these bandoneon books is: every single one of them, no matter what size they are, has got its secret pocket! The wee ones will host in their pocket a voucher or a banknote, one size up there is a pocket just the size a CD-ROM or DVD needs to hide, and the large ones leave it even more to your choice.
Thus, bandoneon books are the perfect way to make your music, your fotos, your memories of that very special moment or holiday a wonderful and individually designed gift.

All pages are made from strong good quality paper and can be designed freely suiting your ideas and needs: with handwriting or calligraphy, with collage, with drawings and paintings, you can stick in fotos or dried flowers - be inspired!

... you can create a picture book for your children or a wedding book for your best friend  ...

... you can use it as an individually designed voucher for a concert ticket or for a trip to anywhere nice ...
