Aren’t these boxes great?
They aren’t only vintage, but also saved from a cruel fate in the dumpster. Our Religious Studies faculty gave them away due to minor flaws (or maybe not enough space in their library – well, it is a rather small faculty). Fact is that these boxes are examples of rather good book binding and I was able to repair the little tears in no time.
Finally no more ugly shoe-boxes for my clutter! And just in time as I wanted to get some additional ones to use the storage room of my desk better.
