Antique Boxes - Inside and Out by Genevieve Cummins
Book DescriptionBoxes are beguiling because they can have the double delight of an enticing exterior and the anticipation and satisfaction of a fully fitted interior. This comprehensive guide to the decoration, style, use and contents of all types of boxes from diverse cultures is the first book to cover both these aspects. The coverage of decoration and styles of boxes is remarkably complete and includes the traditional, the exotic and the eccentric. Folk art to Faberge, tea caddies to tinder boxes, medicine chests to music boxes, ditty to document, voting to vampire, painting, sewing and writing boxes are just some of the topics that are included. The result is a pictorial treat, the text lavishly illustrated with images of nearly 2,000 boxes. It should be a most valuable reference book for the dealer and collector alike.

How the Watch Was Worn, Hardback (May 2010)» View all books by Genevieve Cummins
The watch was not only made to work, but to wear. Its creation, approximately 500 years ago, has been one of man's mechanical masterpieces. The manner of wearing a watch has been sadly neglected. This book aims to correct the deficiency by presenting in pictorial fashion the relevant styles and changes from 1510 to 2010.
