Books and Birds and Books of Birds
I am not the only collector in the family. These stuffed birds and animals belong to my father and are just a part of his collection. Inspired by A Collection a Day I played with the tough I could sometime document his collections. As an ornithologist, collector and bibliophile he would have lots of interesting stuff to photograph.
When I was little I once asked my dad how many books he had. He said he had no idea, so I started counting them. I lost count during the first shelfful, there were to many of them. "It's not worth counting them, I don't need the figure", my dad said. "All I need to know is that there can't be too many."
