Ann Hepper Decorative Box, No. 20
Currently out of stock
Originally from Ireland, Hepper has been living in Florence for over 50 years where she trained in book restoration at the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale. After working both for Harvard at Villa I Tatti and for the German Kunsthistorisches Institut, in their art manuscript department, Hepper digressed into box making, eager to inject her own sense of humour, colour and imaginative spirit into the bookbinding field. Her boxes have been sold internationally, often bespoke on commission.
This box is covered in paper made by the infamous and now sadly defunct paper marbling company Douglas Cockerell & Son.
