The Art of Collecting and Display
A sourcebook of ideas for displaying items within contemporary interiors. The author tackles a range of objects, from paintings, glass and textiles to books, shells and tribal art. Advice is given on how to light, mount and care for collections.

Alistair McAlpine's tremendous enthusiasm for the subject of collecting is well known, he has assembled and disassembled more collections in a few decades than most people do in a lifetime.

A former pearl farmer, antiquities dealer, breeder of rare birds and politician, his interests are diverse. He is known for his long running World of Interiors column, and for many years wrote a monthly piece for The Spectator on the highlights of the auction world.

Cathy Giangrande read art history and chemistry, and later received a degree in archaeological conservation from University College, London. As a conservator she has worked at museums in the United States and Britain, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and, when its home was the Tower of London, the Royal Armouries.
