Musing on Collecting VIII

March 26, 2013

My husband gave me an incredible book about the amazing designer Alexander Girard for Christmas this year and I have been dipping into it since then. In one of my earliest posts I wrote about his folk art collection but apparently he did not like to be called a collector.  “Somewhere here we are going to wind up using the word collector and I want to say immediately that I don’t care for the word at all. I don’t really know what I could call it. It is more a matter of selecting then collecting. And yet a selector sounds like something on a kitchen appliance” he said at some point in the 1950’s.
