Last year, you may remember, I started a series called Special Collections. For that series, I periodically I put together a post about collecting and collections. Sometimes around a theme and sometimes not. Sometimes they are purposeful collections of objects that are acquired by folks for the purpose of collecting–like a seashell collection–or an accidental collection–like a row of bicycles lined up in a bike rack. Either way, I choose striking images that hopefully will inspire you to collect, share your collections or at least look at the material world in a different way.
So, what do you collect? Me? I collect indie-made jewelry and bags. Oh, and illustrations.
I hope you enjoy these collections as much as I do.
