Kate posted a lovely story on her blog the other day about collections and it put me in such a good mood just to see it. I love collections. There's something so inspiring about them - as a resource, a memory or just within themselves. I love collectors too - it's not just the feeling of a kindred 'bower bird' spirit, it's also the vision and imagination behind their collection of what it may become.
It put me in mind of a very interesting fellow I came across one day while blog surfing, Vladimir Koncar. He's a typographer, photographer and fine artist who - when he gets fed up with the day job - begins building up typographic representations made from his own collections of various objects just for fun. I like that :)
To have a peek at many more of his collected typographies, you can find his portfolio here.
