Stationery Box 2009

The books and letters are pinned out like butterflies in collectors trays.
Preserved.
The softer books and letters  are pinned onto silk covered pads; the harder, man-materials, onto acrylic.

The contents are private and intimate but, the transparent drawers allow a glimmer of the contents to be revealed

History or curiosity meant that I always wanted to know what was written under the layers of labels on my old plan chest  drawers. So I make my box with transparent labels, that will be multiple layered over the years, as the contents are replaced.
