A book full of boxes. A box in itself. An unboxing. This book explores boxes in their broadest sense and size. It invites us to step into the field, unravel how and why things are contained and how it might be otherwise. By turning the focus of Science and Technology Studies (STS) to boxing practices, this collation of essays examines boxes as world-making devices. This is a big book, running at over 600 pages, so be prepared for delivery in a bigger than usual box!
The Delux Edition features a hardcover with a dust jacket, making it quite literally a box. The higher price covers additional production costs and helps to support the press.

A note on for EU customers
For customers in the EU, Brexit has had some consequences on our deliveries. In some cases, books shipped to EU countries (from our printer in the UK) may be held at customs, with further charges due to the customer. We are working with our printer to resolve this in the medium term.
