Front Cover
Profile Books Limited, 2010 - Antiques & Collectibles - 127 pages
What is the value of Gandhi's glasses or a collection of Braille editions of Playboy? And how much is an artwork consisting of ten million $100 banknotes worth? In this gloriously eclectic overview of 2009's most ownable objects, Jolyon Fenwick and Marcus Husselby present a treasure trove of over 100 desirable things bought or offered for sale this year. Ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, the cache of curios includes; a hard disk of MPs' expenses over the last five years, Einstein's watch, uncle Monty's cottage from Withnail and I, the last ever cheque issued by Woolworths (it bounced), a holy water sprinkler (made by Parker pens), official posters from the Obama campaign, Captain Cook's boomerang, Super Lemon Haze marijuana, Black Canary Barbie (described as 'filth' by Christian Voice), the key to the binoculars storeroom on board the Titanic.
