Summary

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 decor of any collector's home.
