Synopsis:
Everybody accumulates things, but the 20 collectors whose achievements are showcased in Magnificent Obsessions have amassed extraordinary arrays of objects ranging from the whimsical to the conceptual, the classic to the capricious. Rich color photographs reveal the sprawling scope and fascinating detail of each magnificent collection.

Review:
"The book is a revelation and a joy....After reading the lucid and mesmerizing explanations of why these gifted collectors acquire puzzles or aquarium furniture and after looking at the dazzling photographs, you may become as hooked on the book as its subjects are by their satisfyingly strange artifacts. It turns out that what swizzle sticks tell about contemporary civilization is profound."

Thomas Hoving, New York Times Book Review, 12/4/94
