I love boxes..... I can spy them a mile off. I am drawn to ones covered in unusual papers. They can be beautiful objects as well as useful.
All our boxes are made to order. The fit is very important. An antiquarian book must not be able to rattle around in its box or be so squashed that its boards bow and headcaps are damaged.
Some boxes need to be of archival quality using acid neutral paper as lining. Others can be more flamboyant. I love it when you open up a drop back box to be hit by a vibrant moiré silk or marbled paper. --- A secret revealed ---
