Advice for collectors

Another potential addition to the bookshelves: Paige West's The Art of Buying Art: An Insider's Guide to Collecting Contemporary Art

In an excerpt from the book on, 6 breeds of collectors are described:
  1. The Decorator (art matches the curtains)
  2. The Investor (art is like the stock market)
  3. The Specialist (art fits with your idiosyncratic interest)
  4. The Vacationer (art gets bought on holiday)
  5. The Thrill Seeker (artist X is, like, so hot right now)
  6. The Addict (art is a compulsion).
