Every January, I find myself getting rid of the old to make room for the
new, which was the inspiration for this box. I recently ran across an

The idea for this box came from a calendar of vintage posters I bought
in 2005. I'd held onto it for years because I liked the pictures. I knew

This box was made by request and features pinups ranging from the 1840s to the 1930s. The pictures come from Peep Show Pinups, The Golden Era, by Jo and Paul Richardson. Click the links below for alternate views.
