Why are there collectors?
No doubt reams of learned papers have been written on the subject and, in the end, probably ending in bafflement. We do know that collecting is a natural instinct for many, if not most. Children are especially noted for their inclination in this direction but if you ask such young collectors why they do it, the answer is almost certainly going to be along the lines of: “I dunno. ‘Cause it’s fun.” And that’s quite possibly what it’s all about: because of the enrichment in our lives that collecting gives us.
