New book on tobacco boxes
25 April 2014
Recently a new book was published in a limited edition on Dutch tobacco boxes with biblical decorations. The author, Renger Knibbe, collected these kind of boxes for years and has analysed the engravings on these typical Dutch tobacco boxes. Doing so he produced a catalogue of his collection, organized along the order of the Bible text. In some cases he even found the prints that have been used as an example for the engraving on the box. The publication is written and produced with great care and accuracy, both in the colour pictures and the descriptions and background. The book is available in the Amsterdam Pipe Museum.
