Collections AND Containers.

After visiting the LEEDS Museum I have been thinking about collections and how they are contained, in more detail...
A container is:- 

Is this not the definition of a book in some ways? A book is used to hold whatever is 
placed inside it and then is easily transported places.

Initial Ideas I'd had would be to use the toilet roll cardboard as a container, to then intricately cut out my designs of objects most probably, then for them to stand inside the toilet roll, safely contained within the toilet roll cardboard they will be safe and portable.

Also, using the idea of book casing which can be made at Vernon street and presenting it as a draw from a museum, then to set my subject (content) in resin. This works in the same way easily transportable and collects information in a neat and easy/productive way.
