We were not the first to think of hollowing out books, however, we did stumble onto the idea independently. In 1992 a family member's home was robbed. The thieves were in the house for only a few minutes but still managed to find all the jewelry and money hidden in the underwear drawer.

The owners of the BookBox™Company (Brian and Heather Egan) were operating a woodworking business at the time of the robbery and were therefore well equipped to experiment with clever ways to hide small valuables.

The first BookBoxes™ were given to family members as Christmas gifts in 1992 and were introduced to customers of the woodworking business soon afterwards. Everyone loved them. Over the next few years sales of woodwork declined and Bookboxes™ rose. By 1996 Bookboxes accounted for 90% of sales at the Bear Creek Box Company.

In 1997 the company name was changed to the Book Box™Company. Since then we have been entirely devoted to the art of hollow books.
