Everyone collects something – matchbooks, masks, salt and pepper shakers – you name it, someone loves it. A unique or unusual collection doesn’t have to be valuable, just something that’s well curated and speaks to the person’s passion. This book features eccentric, inspiring, obsessive collectors, and stories from Wichita's top collectors.
SONDRA LANGEL Like her two other books, Wichita Artists in Their Studio and Thursday Afternoon Cooking Club, Langel’s newest work came from her desire to learn and tell stories. All of collecting is a testament to dedication and perseverance, and also hunt for treasure. In this book, Langel honors those whose authentic passion she was able to capture. LARRY SCHWARM One of the reasons Schwarm became a photographer was to collect memories through images. Like many of the collectors in this book, he is a collector of collections, including the tramp art seen here. He has collaborated with Langel on two previous books, and has photographs in art museum collections throughout the United States, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
