The Private Collection
As object connoisseurs, we’re a sucker for a good collection. Apparently we’re not alone. On her blog, Lisa Congdon put together impeccable photos of her favorite collections for 365 days in a row—interesting, obscure stuff like vintage Russian passports, sewing machine parts and (perhaps the strangest one) baby doll hands. For her labors, she’s been rewarded with a book deal, giving you the chance to put it all on your coffee table. (You can also check out the blog here.) Our favorite so far, perhaps predictably, is the vintage boxer photos.
