This book is made of 13 folded boxes and enclosures that unfold layer by layer. It looks complicated but is not difficult to make and its size and format can easily be adapted. It is based on the Zhen Xian Bao, a traditional Chinese sewing book, to hold threads, needles, and sewing supplies. It can be used for practical storage or as the foundation for an artist’s book with stories, drawings, hidden messages and more.
