Start with 1 very long piece that is intended to become accordion book 5.
Hang it in the studio for viewing and pondering.
Get really close so its whispers of what it truly wants to become are clearly heard.
Take it down from its lofty perch.
Lay it on your worktable...back side up...and
just do it.
Cut it into 4 equal lengths measuring approximately 64".
Give them a lofty perch again and stand back to listen to their whispers.
Of contentment? Of dismay? Of not-quite-there-ness?
Listen to one who yearns to be more.
So...it is possible for 1 = 4 = 5.
Don't you just love art math?
(sorry for the poor lighting...it's darker on that end of the studio)
