Each case is made entirely by hand using traditional techniques and the best archival materials.

Clamshell cases are an elegant, yet practical, method for the presentation and protection of photographs, documents and books and the interlocking tray design provides safe storage and reduces the contents’ exposure to light and dust.

Also known as a Solander box, Dr. Daniel Solander sailed with Captain Cook aboard the Endeavour, as one of the ship’s botanists, to the Pacific Ocean. While cataloguing the natural history collections of the British Museum he invented this style of box, which is still used in libraries and archives today and considered the most suitable way of storing prints, drawings and manuscripts.

Cases are carefully and securely packed and shipped with tracking.
