San Francisco based artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon has always been fascinated with with collecting, arranging, and organizing her collections. On January 1, 2010, Lisa took it upon herself to photograph, draw, and occasionally paint these collections for the entire year, and thus, the Collection a Day 2010 project was born.
Documenting objects ranging from vintage books and matchbox labels to colorful bits and bobbles, each collection is well curated and carefully composed. Recently, Uppercase announced that these incredible collections will be made into a book, available Spring 2011.
The Collection a Day, 2010 book is available for pre-order via the Collection a Day, 2010 blog as well as Uppercase’s site. To see more images from the collection, visit the Collection a Day, 2010 blog. Be sure to also check out Lisa’s site to see her artwork and illustrations. Better yet, if you’re in San Francisco, stop her shop Rare Device, which sells amazing stationary, artwork, and other nibbles and goodies.
