"One box to hold them all"

Quite some time ago, klik took my dad's pocket version of The Lord of the Rings (printed in 1971 -- older than I am!) that he had read to pieces. Literally. She repaired them and re-bound them into pretty hardcover books.
I was to make a box to hold the books, but it took me a lot of time to figure out what I wanted to do with it. In the end, Imade a 'plateau' of sorts to put the books in: I didn't want to hide the books inside a box! Yesterday we gave them back, and my dad was mighty pleased with the results!

Pictures and (Dutch) text are up on DrukGedoe.nl.

(And if you have a pocket book that you want to have restored, you know who to call!)
