Confessions of a Poor Collector
Eugene M. Schwartz
Confessions of a Poor Collector is a tiny reprint of a booklet written in 1970 by US art collector, Eugene Schwartz. Subtitled "How to build a worthwhile art collection with the least possible money", it's a short step-by-step of Schwartz's top tips for starting an art collection. My favourite is "Curators don't have money to buy art! But you do, so you should make use of their knowledge" (I'm paraphrasing, of course). At it's (tiny, tiny) heart, it's how-to about how to learn more about art, and how-to foster a love of it.
