Slide Show, by Carolyn Davis, an accordion foldout book, forms a circle mimicking the shape of a slide carousal. Fifteen slides from her grandparent’s trip to Canada in 1961 are recreated and placed into slots in the carousal. The feel of each image, the sounds the images make when removed from the carousal-like book, and the black and white color scheme reminds readers of family slideshows before i-photo and made those gatherings a fading memory.

Cristina Ottenwalder’s Ornamental, inspired by the use of ornamentation in Islamic art, consists of two circular discs that lift apart, revealing four small books. Each book addresses different aspects of ornamentation. The doily pattern, used throughout the books, reinforces her extended meditation on the function of the design that readers usually see through without stopping to notice the patterns.

Brown, by Whitney Stanton, uses a traditional codex book form to appeal to both children and adult readers. The illustrations, accompanied by a poem borrowed form Hailstones and Halibut Bones: Adventures in Color, eloquently and playfully reinforce and extend the poem's metaphors and puns.
