Specialty Boxes for Siglio Press

I just finished a large order of boxes for Siglio Press. The boxes are custom made to hold a set of art cards.

They are half clam shells, with a magnetic lip

In 1960 American collage artist Jess sent thirty-five collages to the filmmaker Lawrence Jordan. They arrived in an envelope with no note, but several week earlier Jess had commented to Jordan, “You need more subtitles in your films.” This limited edition reproduces the entire set of collages which show a different facet of Jess’s art but nevertheless evince his particular brand of playfulness, sense of humor, and compositional dexterity with both word and image. Each collage is printed in color with archival ink on gorgeous handmade Japanese paper so that reading and arranging (and rearranging) is a visual as well as tactile joy. The set is loose (the collages vary in size) inside a dark purple cloth-bound half-clam shell box, foil-stamped “Finds of the Fortnight.”
