David makes archival clamshell boxes and slipcases to protect and preserve valuable books–whether an old family bible, a rare first edition, or a valuable book that is centuries old. 

David uses varied book cloths, fine leathers and decorative papers to reflect and enhance the beauty of the individual volume, which makes the design as much like the original book as possible. 

Boxes can be enhanced with foil-stamped or calligraphic titles, and if fine leather, hand tooling: blind, or in gold.
The pieces seen here are only the tip of the iceberg--make an appointment to see the large number of pieces at David's Studio!
