A collector's year
This book started out as a weekly column for the Hobart Mercury.
It is structured by month, so, for example, the author uses April to write about collecting material related to war.
In December he talks about collecting Christmas related things.
It blends personal tastes, observations and reflections with tips for picking things up on Ebay, garage sales and antique shops.
It often includes details about how much some things are worth, what it means to be a collector as opposed to a hoarder, how to organize and display your things and so on."
