Todd Elkin and Arzu Mistry (we) began making accordion books to document, reflect, plan, and think expansively about our practice as artists and teachers. The act of making these books, and the ways of structured and unstructured thinking that drive and are driven by their making has become deeply woven, not only into our teaching and artistic practice but into the ways that we think, feel and act in the world. We made them together and separately and exchanged them. We started to share them with teachers and students all over the world and they in turn started to make and share them.
