Came across Obsessionistas the other day. Fascinating and interesting listing of and links to collectors and their reasons for collecting. Includes the world’s only collector of toothpaste cartons. What fun! Also interesting that many (a majority?) of the collectors are connected to art and design in some way, and to higher education.  Is that an artefact of the site, are these types of people more likely to share their obsessions, or are there significant numbers of creative people associated with collecting?
