People have been collecting things for centuries. Whether it's something precious, or simply things that recall childhood memories, collections can turn a hobby into a lifetime obsession. This latest book by Stephen Crafti, Eclectic Collections
looks at a number of great collections: contemporary art, vintage fashion, wallpapers, ceramics, contemporary jewelry, and even rare and fine books. Some collectors have customized 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.
