B3323. Constructing and Covering Boxes / Hollander Constructing and Covering Boxes: A Beginner’s Guide by Tom & Cindy Hollander. 2009. 64pp. 8.5"x11". Paper
If you want to make boxes, you need to buy this book. It is a treasure.
Tom and Cindy present very thorough instruction for only two box projects: a hinged box and a clamshell box. Each stage of the box is broken down into detailed steps, each illustrated with a good color photo. (There are over 230 photos in the book.) Using the book is similar to having a master box maker demonstrating the construction for you - and also showing you all the small techniques that are so important in a well-crafted box. First, they show and tell you the tools and materials you will need and why you need them. Then they present how to determine the grain of book board, book cloth, and paper. Next is cutting board and covering materials, followed by two pages and thirteen instructional photos presenting the essentials of gluing. Now you are ready to learn how to make the two boxes! At the end of the book are fill-in-the-blank worksheets to figure each of the pieces needed for different sizes of the two boxes, plus a glossary and thirty examples of boxes to inspire you. Dimensions are given in inches.

B4317. Marbled Paper /Wolfe B4317. Marbled Paper: Its History, Techniques, and Patterns by Richard J. Wolfe. 2018. 245pp. 37 color plates. 9"x12". Paper Subtitle: with special reference to the relationship of marbling to bookbinding in Europe and the Western world.
Second edition, from the original edition published in 1990 by the University of Pennsylvania Press (a publication of the A.S.W. Rosenbach Fellowship in Bibliography). With over 350 color and 80 black-and-white illustrations, and a new Foreword by Sidney Berger. Richard J. Wolfe (1928-2017) was a rare book librarian, practicing marbler, and collector of marbled papers and books about marbling. This book is the result of more than 25 years of research and practical experience. Wolfe tracked down and sorted out historical records of marbling from their original sources, drawing on his own extensive experience as a practitioner to write eloquently on technical and stylistic questions. The resulting study puts all aspects of this fascinating craft in proper perspective. When first published, Marbled Paper was immediately recognized as the most comprehensive study of marbling to that point, and its status as the standard history of the subject is undiminished.
