Piano Accordion

Piano Accordion

This piano accordion book houses three accordion texts. An accordion text fits into the button box and tells the story of how our son became interested in learning the accordion, and how I eventually began playing the accordion with him. The accordion text in the box beneath the piano keys is a Just-So story I created to "explain" how the politically incorrect lyrics to a popular 1940s accordion song came to be replaced with lyrics about healthy eating for use in a children's piano accordion primer. The bellows accordion is lettered with alternating versions of the lyrics. Accordion case and text blocks were drawn, painted, and lettered, then scanned, printed and assembled into books.

Size: 1-3/4 in high, 3-1/2 in wide, 1-3/4 in deep.
