Summary

Summary

Prizewinning wooden boxes are the subject of this beautifully produced, full-color art book. The selection of boxes included is the result of a worldwide competition for placement in the ""Celebrating Boxes"" exhibition held at Tullie House, England, in September 2001. Many of featured artists are American, but makers from 10 other countries around the world are also represented. The creation of fine boxes is especially interesting to woodworkers because it combines the skills of the painter, sculptor, and cabinet-maker all in one useful object. This is not a ""how to""; rather it is a source of ideas and inspiration for craftspeople.
