box to house book



BO>I need some bookbinding advice. I'm planning to make a box to house a
BO>sculptural artist's book. The box will need to be 12" wide x 15" high and
BO>3" deep. Parts of the sculpture will be attached to the inside of the box,
BO>so the book will not be removable. The box will have to be able to stand
BO>with the book/sculpture in it. I don't want it to end up being too heavy,
BO>so I was wondering whether it would be a bad idea to make it out of foam
BO>core covered with cloth? Does anyone know how stable foam core is? Will the
BO>foam disintegrate and the board collapse in time? Is there a better
BO>material to use? Thanks for any advice.
