Phase boxes protect and/or arrest deterioration of books in need of professional repair and cleaning, and indicate to users that care is needed when handling the book. You will learn how to create the simple but effective box structure and be shown how it can be used to develop other forms which can be used to hold small books in cradles, very thin books or multiple pamphlets on platforms, and books of different sizes within one box. The essential skills are measuring and cutting. On the day you will make one basic phase box and another with a cradle and platform to hold and protect smaller books or one to suit your own book.
