Author Oscar P. Fitzgerald offers an in-depth look at 34 contemporary masters of the wooden box. Each artist’s profile contains detailed images and illustrations of his or her work and a collection of gorgeous images exhibiting the amazing boxes. Brief essays are also included—many of them never before been published—that concentrate on the artists’ design concepts and goals. These illustrations accompany each profile to reflect and fully illuminate the capabilities of each artist. New Masters of the Wooden Box delves beyond the final work’s surface to each artist's artistic language of materials, techniques, and shapes. This collection also includes an in-depth introduction that covers the recent history of the wooden box in carpentry, as well as its role in current crafts and musical works. Other items such as storage boxes, jewelry boxes, desk boxes, reliquaries, personalized keepsake boxes, and more are also featured.

If you are interested in stretching your mind and your woodworking “out of the box,” then this book is for you. Not only are the boxes themselves inspiring, but the information provided is also filled with tidbits of ideas. Some of the work will make you go, “Huh? How did they do that?” And some will get you saying, “Huh? How did they come up with that idea?” Others will have you saying, “Huh?” Regardless of your initial response, you will definitely be intrigued and inspired – and perhaps you will find yourself heading out to the shop in search of that enlightenment to create a box that is “outside the box”!
