I am not a collector, but I collect

While out and about I can't resist dropping into every op shop and second hand dealer. These are two of my favourite pieces picked up recently. A fantastic worn leather camera case from around the 1920's, its beautiful warm tone and shapely latch will hopefully get some use as a new sketch kit. The second is a printing plate that I lugged back from Greenwich adding four kilograms to my check in luggage. I have reversed the image so that you can read the details. If you have primary school italian skills you should be able to work it out. Enjoy.
