Supercollectors is our series about people with unusual collections of music and music-related stuff.
Today, we launch our weeklong Supercollectors series. We ask Susan Sliwicki, managing editor of Goldmine magazine, about the impulse to collect.
To help better understand collectors and collecting, I recommend my book, "The Art of Collecting", available on Amazon.com for $25.
