Another small edition booklet from Marc Fischer's Public Collectors project, this time drawing from the energetic Public Collectors blog on Tumblr. Similar to the blog, each page is a single image-based entry with a short caption explaining where the picture or scan came from. Contents are all over the place including: a flyer for an Alice Cooper tribute band, a flyer for a missing hat, scans from old medical and psychology books, details from obscure fanzines, protest literature from an AIDS rally in around 1987, old ads for records by Arthur Brown and Venom, found childrens homework, drawings from books on human and animal evolution, and so much more. Printed on ivory color paper with a fancy metallic gold cover. From the back cover:


Public Collectors is founded upon the concern that there are many types of cultural artifacts that public libraries, museums and other institutions and archives either do not collect or do not make freely accessible. Public Collectors asks individuals that have had the luxury to amass, organize, and inventory these materials to help reverse this lack by making their collections public.

This booklet consists of sample findings (or excerpts from publications) that were originally posted on the Public Collectors blog (publiccollectors.tumblr.com). These images are a selection pulled from nearly 650 images and scans that I posted between September 2009 and November 2010.

Public Collectors on Tumblr is intended as a casual, more personal supplement to the main Public Collectors website. I update the blog almost every day. It is a place for small things and for fragments of much larger things. It is also an account of the contents of my apartment and digital files from my camera. If you have a question about something in this booklet, or if you are in Chicago or passing through and would like to see something in person, please feel free to contact me.
