Featuring some of today's best woodworkers and artisans - such as Michael Hosaluk, Steven Kennard, Richard Raffin, Jacques Vesery, Bonnie Klein and Hans Weissflog - this craftsmen's companion celebrates these modern masters and others who have taken box-making to a higher level of aesthetic form. The artist profiles include full-colour, studio-quality photographs of their work along with essays that illustrate their design ideas and how they crafted the finished object. In addition, this collection also offers an in-depth introduction detailing the recent history of the wooden box in woodworking and its place in contemporary crafts and instrumental pieces, such as jewellery boxes, desk boxes, reliquaries and keepsakes.
