I’m currently reading this (I might actually finish it), I was looking on a bookshelf for something else…anyway. There’s a surprising number of wonderful, relevant quotes in it, mostly about collecting.

I never want to experience being an owner rather than a collector. Lucky there’s an infinite amount of things I can collect…

This is more useful advice…but not the bit about using books to stop ant-lions getting out of top hats. Maybe I should go through more books to find useful/interesting quotes…hm.

Speaking of collections, I haven’t added to the camera collection for ages. I think the last one was the Lomokino… The ones I’m looking at are just quite expensive. And maybe I should use more than one at a time (I’ve got film in the Blackbird at the moment). I’ve only got a few rolls of black & white 35mm, so maybe I should stock up on that, and it can never hurt to have more 120… Quote collecting is fairly slow, my record box is filling up nicely though.

I’ve put almost every art material-ish thing I own into this box. There’s more than I expected. Hopefully I won’t forget everything now all of my Edinburgh things are in one place. It does take a while to get to the things at the bottom though.

And I recently filled this book with a collection of stuff and crap I just couldn’t throw out. It’s a book of Soviet postcards from the Building the Revolution exhibition we went to in January. Although you can’t see much of the postcards anymore.
