Collectors’ Obsessions Book

Magnificent Obsessions: Twenty Remarkable Collectors in Pursuit of Their Dreams is a large paperback book which features a souvenir building collector. Six pages are dedicated to Steve Schwartz’s California collection. He explains how he began, like most of us, with just a few metal buildings and then the numbers grew. Schwartz discusses some of his favorite buildings and how he acquired them. Other collections written about in the book include teapots, swizzle sticks, puzzles, civil war items and fishing equipment. Nice color photos accompany each collection. As collectors ourselves, we can understand and appreciate why these accumulators are so passionate about their desired obsessions.
