Elder, Art "A Passionate Affair"
A Passionate Affair by Art Elder - Paperback book
Scholars and experts have written other books about paperweights, but none in recent history have described the intricacies and delicacies of collecting them. Art tells of how he became interested in paperweights and how that interest grew into a 30-year passionate affair, and some of his encounters along "The Yellow Brick Road" of collecting. He describes where fine paperweights are found, how to select them, and also some interesting encounters along the way. Defining moments are included that were indelible in forming his collecting philosophy. He includes advice on caring for a collection, along with a glossary to help the reader understand paperweight terminology and a comprehensive bibliography of past literature. Pictures of paperweights in his collection are illustrated in breathtaking clarity, and the significance of each is described. This entertaining and educational book will appeal not only to readers interested in paperweights and are wanting more information about them, but also to many others with a variety of interests in collecting.
