Sounds interesting. If you do pursue the accordion-style binding you might
want to think about the traditional Japanese double-leaf accordion. It is
described in Ikegami's JAPANESE BOOKBINDING. Each page is made up of two
leaves pasted only at the vertical edges so it is possible to cut a frame
in one leaf and mount the broadsides between the two leaves. If this is
unclear drop me a line and I'll be more specific.
