oseph Cornell's life, his sources of artistic inspiration, and his intriguing boxes are presented in beautifully collaged spreads in the 80-page book. The book's design, inspired by Cornell's boxes, collages, and letters, tells his story in both words and images. A project section aims to inspire the reader to create their own box assemblages. Ideas and materials are suggested for six boxes, including habitat boxes, game boxes, and museum boxes, all based on significant themes in Cornell's work. Also included are fun materials to get the creative process started—five sheets for collaging, a ready-to-assemble miniature box, a magnifying lens, colored plastic, and printed game pieces—all housed in a sturdy hinged box with a removable grid.
