The idea of collecting like objects has been around for centuries: stamps, sewing notions, and postcards are amongst the most popular. But what about those others things that we collect that are just as beautiful, but not as praised?
A handful of talented photographers and artists out there are documenting these more atypical collections, which are spurting up all over the internet now, with projects like A Collection A Day, flickr groups with the collections theme, and even on image bookmarking sites like Pinterest.
Here’s to hoping this idea begins to catch on with more people soon because the photographs coming out of these unusual collections are gorgeous.
Do you collect anything?
