Watercolor Super Box

This wooden box once belonged to my father. It was a humidor for cigars with a fancy purple velvet lining most of which has been concealed by my handiwork. Top tray lifts our for pen storage. Works great! The watercolor sketchbook is an accordion fold, inspired by David Hockney.

Looking at the book!

Here it is, hot off the press, the Sketchbook of Cortona! It took several years to iron-out the myriad details of self publishing, and boy, did I learn a lot. I sent the first batch to the small bookshop in Cortona, Nocentini ‘s, on Via Nazionale, where it will be for sale.
