The Impecunious Collector's Guide to American Antiques

By John T. Kirk
The appearance of 'impecunious' in another thread has reminded me of this book, which I recommend to anyone who collects anything (which, if he's serious about it, will keep him in the 'impecunious' category!).
Teaching a form of visual meditation, this Kirk-work was instrumental in my learning how to see. While the focus is on early American furniture, Kirk moves outside that category, comparing models of VW bugs, or Revereware pans in ways that return "discrimination" to its good roots.
Entertainment and enlightenment.
