This volume focuses on the nature and study of collectors and collecting in the closing decades of the 20th century, from 1960 onwards. Concentrating on contemporary or "new" collecting", this volume explores new trends in collecting, which digress from the "old collecting" conventions of antiques and fine art, to the discovery of value in objects such as milk bottles and telephone cards. The study of a number of "contemporary voices" shows that trends in these generations differ from those of previous ones. It is not so much the exotic or "other" which attracts the modern collecting sensibility, but rather the material culture which symbolises our everyday life.
