To quote San Francsico's 7 x 7 Magazine, "Unless you've been living under a rock, this should not be news to you." Hopefully you've already discovered "A Collection A Day." Lisa Congdon and her year long documenting project have been featured in The New York Times, The SF Chronicle, Martha Stewart Living, NPR, SwissMiss, and Apartment Thearpy, to name a few.
It was only a matter of time before The Collect Collective expressed love for A Collection A Day. Though Lisa Congdon was too busy to give us an interview, she was so sweet to send these photographs for us to use.
The Collection A Day project spans exactly 365 days. It began on January 1st 2010 and ended December 31st 2010. For an entire year, a image was posted of one of Congdons's personal collections. It was either a photograph shot minimally with a clean white background, or a drawing or painting of a collection. This simplistic representation of Congdon's vast collection of collections was so intriuging and stimulating it left us all wating each day to see what she would present us with next.
In March of this year UPPERCASE published the "A Collection A Day" book. It comes packaged in it's own collectors tin. If you are interested in purchasing the book, signed copies can be found here, where there are also other sweet tidbits for sale.
If you are looking to purchase photographic prints from "A Collection A Day" they can be aquired here, on the new collection a day blog where you will also find information about the book, press info and dates for book singing events.
If you would like more information on Lisa Congdon's current projects, art and illustrations, it is available at Lisa Congdon.com. And her prints, drawings, paintings, greeting cards and even necklasess are available on her Etsy site.
Thanks Lisa, for the use of your stunning photographs!
