Custom Book Boxes

Handcrafted, custom slip cases, clam-shell boxes (also known as drop-spine, or Solander, boxes), and two-piece boxes, built to house and protect your valuable books, manuscripts, maps, family records, photographs, fine art prints, etc.

Boxes are constructed of heavy duty, archival quality book-binder’s board, then covered with paper, or cloth, in colors that will complement the items. Paper can range from plain art paper to elaborate marbled paper, and a wide variety of fabrics can be used for the covering, including custom papers/fabric of your own design. Various leathers also available as covering material. I can also add extra internal divider trays, either fixed or removable.

$115 for typical clam-shell and two-piece boxes; $60 for typical slip-case – plus shipping charges.   More info, and photos of completed projects.
