"An object in a museum case must suffer the de-natured existence of an animal in a zoo. In any museum the object dies - of soffocation and the public gaze - whereas private ownership confers on the owner the right and the need to touch. As a young child will reach out to handle the thing it names, so the passionate collector, his eye in harmony with his hand, restores to the object the life-giving touch of its maker."   -  Bruce Chatwin, 1988

 

 

 

 

I often thought about leaving something behind when collecting. Nothing big or fancy but something that helps collectors and most importantly those that are just starting out.

This is that "something".

 

When collecting one immediately comes to realize that there's little information out there to be had. It was true when I collected and little it seems has changed since. Hopefully this "something" fills that void in some small way also.

 

The website's initial concept pivoted on being continually updated with pictures of other's collections. This unfortunately was doomed from the start because of lack of interest.

 

Hopefully the website helps collectors as intended.

 

Best - Lawrence
