THE BOOK I CONSULTED FOR PORTIONS OF THIS ARTICLE
- Decorating With Collectibles , by Annette R. Lough.
The author’s career has been devoted to designing and photographing displays, and encouraging collectors to bring their collections "out from behind the glass." The book is divided into chapters by style, including Country, Garden, Kids Collections, Nautical, Rustic Retreats, Seasonal Sanctuary, Southwest Style, and Victorian Romance. Beyond the first chapter, I gleaned more from the photographs then from the text.

The book also offers more photographs of holiday displays, such as Christmas (My Favorite Christmas Store ), than anything else. Still, I think this book might be useful for collectors, especially if you favor one of the styles listed above. Do-it-yourselfers will also gain creative ideas from this publication.
