Product description

Synopsis

From bicycles to baked bean tins, cookers to cuckoo clocks, gramophones to garden gnomes, the collector's territory is as broad as it is beautiful. It's been said that one man's junk is another man's collection. But, while the collections of some gather dust in the attic, the 40-plus blokes in this book have proudly dragged theirs out into the light, polished them up and put them on display for the world to see. In this book, author Brian Jenner peers into their cluttered worlds and uncovers the bloke beneath the bric-a-brac, the personality behind the paraphernalia, the method in the memorabilia. Each fascinating story is illustrated with revealing photographs of each man and his collection. A truly collectible gift for men of all ages.
