Description

The wonderfully compelling and unorthodox memoir of 63-year old international model and iconoclast, @mywrinklesaremystripes' Sarah Jane Adams. Auction catalogues can reveal a lot about a person: their life, their loves and their style. Antique jewellery dealer Sarah Jane Adams became an international model and overnight Instagram sensation in her sixties. She tells her story through a lifetime's collection of rare pieces and worthless objects, as well as personal photographs and effects from her 'estate'. Told with wit, pathos and charm. Life In A Box illustrates the deeply personal connection that we have with our belongings: they are laden with rich meaning and adventure and, above all, redolent of our stories.
