Featuring 400 outstanding works that range from traditional to wildly contemporary, this superb gallery celebrates the art of the wooden box. The wonderfully wide variety of styles includes traditional jewelry and keepsake, turned, and tool boxes; miniature treasure chests; and sculptural work. Each one has been personally chosen by renowned boxmaker Tony Lydgate, and appears in an exquisite color plate; many of the boxes also come with detailed images that reveal important construction secrets. The selection includes pieces by a distinguished group of artists.
