This latest book by Stephen Crafti, Eclectic Collections, looks at a number of great collections: contemporary art, vintage fashion, wallpapers, ceramics, contemporary jewellery, and even rare and fine books. Some collectors have customised their spaces at home to accommodate their collections, while others have transformed their abodes into warehouses, desperately trying to find room for their next acquisition.
A collector of designer hats even resorted to the bathtub to accommodate her collection. This book not only showcases great collections but draws out the collector's personality and their ‘hunt’ for the next piece in their extraordinary ‘puzzles’, each acquisition shedding new light on these impressive collections.

Inspired by the architecture around him in Melbourne, Australia, he was keen to share the things he saw, whether buildings, furniture, fashion or other stunning pieces of contemporary design.
After many years of writing about his ‘favourite things’, and with numerous books and articles behind him, Crafti still delights in discovering and promoting exhilarating design. He is a regular contributor to several Australian newspapers and local and international design magazines.
Belle Magazine – Aug/Sept 2016Collecting can become an obsession to the point where the hunter/gatherer needs more and bigger spaces to house acquisitions. This is not necessarily a bad thing as this book so graphically displays, as collectors transform their homes into showcases for their passion, from vintage fashion, books and jewellery to wallpaper and ceramics.
