Solander Boxes, Part 1

Solander Boxes

They are protective, archival, sturdy, and downright beautiful.

I'm making some custom boxes for Sonia at Bohemian Secret. Her photographic talents are obvious; her dedication to quality is impressive.  You really must visit her site to see her work, including salt prints, colodian, film, digital and more. These boxes are to house print sets for her customers.

Here are some progress photos.

Sonia's prints fit perfectly :)

painstaking work, but built to last

Now, onto the matt inserts and cases - thank goodness the weather here is starting to warm up, 'cause these have taken twice as long to dry properly as they should. Note to self - no boxwork in winter, or indeed until mid-September!

Stay tuned later this week for part 2.

Cheers, friends.
