More than 350 intensely evocative, frequently surreal images are brilliantly sequenced for an unnerving cumulative effect. Most critically, they are drawn together by Hunt’s highly personal monologue that weaves throughout the book. The end result is a series of surprising epiphanies about how and why one collects. This volume is a must for anyone who collects or has considered putting together a collection of their own.
