Drop Spine Box

I have been looking for a way to protect and securely house my Sword and the Stone. I decided this would also be a good opportunity to practice with drop spine boxes. I followed the manual available from Syracuse University online. I found the most difficult part to be actually covering the boards. This book was also particularly difficult because the dimensions were so close. It was suggested to me to use a heavier weight paper for inside of the case. I initially used Dove Gray, but then covered it with Stonehenge. I recommend the Stonehenge, it makes the step from the turn-ins softer. Unfortunately, these are images of the box (pre-Stonehenge).
