When I first heard that the project title was Collections, my very first thought was my Grandad. I have grown up rummaging through his collections of all sorts of antiques and treasures, from postcards to commemorative ware to toys. My weekends were spent with grandparents at car boot sales or antique fairs. So for this project, I decided to acknowledge and commemorate his collections.
For my zine I decided to use a quote written by Sir Joshua Reynolds which is framed and hung on the wall at my home. I felt the quote was fitting as a starting point for this project. The images in the zine were collages of cigarette cards that belonged to my Grandad.
