Rhein-Panorama von Mainz bis Cöln.
Wilhelm Scütz, Grossherzogl. S. Hofbuchbinderei, Prägeanstalt, Photo-Lithogr. Kunstanstalt,
This book, made in leporello format, presents a panoramic view of the Rhine. (The terms “accordion book” or “concertina” are often used interchangeably for this style of book structure, given its pleat-like folds.) Opening the book’s covers reveals a continuous 92-inch strip that traces the flowing path of the great European river. Rhein-Panorama is used in RBS courses as an example of books that resist traditional bibliographical description.
