Box for a Jockey

Once upon a time there was a jockey. He had nothing to do.....until he landed on the workbench of bookbinder Cornelia Kurtz. She had a new task for him. She built him a new home out of sturdy cardboard, covered it with linen and this beautiful paper from Carta Varese, produced in Florence in an elaborate process reminiscent of screen printing. Now the jockey is a full-time guardian of all kinds of found objects, coins, paper clips or earrings that can be stored in the enchanting box. And we at Antiquariat Cartobook finally know where to put these little paper treasures and give them a "second life".

Box with loose lid, 16.5 wide, 11.5 deep and 5.5 high

Each of these objects from Cornelia Kurtz's workshop is unique. Rummaged up by Cartobook in forgotten boxes and drawers, the individual paper antiques now enter the public domain and seem as fresh now as they did when they were made and distributed with care. And already their "second life" begins. Right here!
