From Display’s Collecting History:
Collections tell stories. Often, they represent a personal narrative or reveal some interesting character traits of the collector […]
Some collectors are content to simply own the object but for us that falls short … it’s not enough to own the object – it’s also about what the object can teach us. Learning from our collection has made the experience of collecting worthwhile.
That’s how I like to think of what I’m doing on this blog: collecting to tell stories. It’s not the shortest way, and it takes time to come together, but it’s a story nonetheless.
