Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We are all born collectors. In childhood we hoard all manner of knick-knacks — marbles, ribbons, toy soldiers — and experience an instinctive thrill in finding the next and even better one. This book explores the ways in which collectibles as diverse as antique maps, ceramics, and seashells can be used in interior design. With lavish illustrations of interiors that make wonderful decorative use of collections, A Passion For Collecting reveals the secrets for display that can make an incredible visual impact on the décor of any collector's home.

Review:

"Dividing her subjects into categories including exotica-loving 'Explorers' and genteel 'Miniaturists,' [Clifton-Mogg suggests that the compulsion [to collect] affects people of all temperaments and budgets....But the photos mostly focus on those souls who can afford to follow their passion to the absolute limit, like J.P. Morgan, who once hired a man to live in Greece for several years in pursuit of Byron's manuscripts." Joy Press, The Village Voice

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 186-187) and index.
