An accordion book is upright, unfolded and arranged in a semicircular fashion. To resemble an accordion, the cover boards are covered with red silk and stamped in gold; a black leather strip is attached to each board with two grommets; all edges gilt; no spine. Black and faded pink print is visible along the continuous strip between the book covers. One panel is showing an illustration of a glass of wine.
