Each display topic includes a comprehensive background discussion along with detailed assembly instructions, an explanation of the genesis of the idea and suggestions on ways to adapt these designs to fit into larger spaces.
The author includes everyday items, prized collectibles and authentic antiques in each of the 45 displays featured.
