08 // The Collections Issue
Dedicated to the things we choose to surround ourselves with.
The team meet Dale Rogers – a man in he same vein as the great British collectors Sir John Soane and Michael Mayer – who travels the world acquiring fossilised crocodiles, dinosaur skeletons and petrified trees.
But it's not just those taking an Indiana Jones route to collecting who interest them. They also explore those who seek out everything from jazz albums to bicycle parts; masks to Penguin Classics; crockery to furniture.
The relationship between tools and art is examined with Linda Brothwell, hail the return of wild swimming, celebrate the guardians of British manufacturing and re-evaluate the groundbreaking work of furniture designer Wendell Castle.
And, in a unique project, the alluring appeal of the handwritten note, exchanging chain letters with the artist Tracey Emin, the designer maker Sebastian Cox, composer Oliver Coates and more. Meanwhile, Sir Paul Smith allows us a rare peek inside his shed.
