More About This Title A Collector's Year


A Collector’s Year is a lively account of a year in the life of a collector. Adrian Franklin, TV presenter and author, takes us on a month-by-month journey through the quirky and often kooky world of those enthusiasts who pursue with passion their next treasures to be displayed, admired and loved. From a souvenir shop in Hobart to a car-boot sale in rural England, Franklin explores the best hotspots for collecting, and provides useful insight into where to find collectables and how to sort the trash from the treasure.


Adrian Franklin is a professor of sociology at the University of Tasmania and is best known for his role on ABC1’s hit show, Collectors.
