Synopsis

Other Objects of Desire Collectors and Collecting Queerly by Michael Camille

Other Objects of Desire; Collectors and Collecting Queerly explores gay identities and identifications as they are communicated in and through art, and provides a critical approach to the study of collectors and collecting. From Jean de Berry to the internet addict, from Christina of Sweden to Andy Warhol, this collection of essays sets about questioning the terms and methodologies of gay or queer historical studies and the very nature and definition of collecting. Richly illustrated, scholarly and bold, this anthology respresents the work of both young and established Art Historians in trenchant, original and groundbreaking style.

Why I love @lovereadinguk? It's in the name - as dedicated lovers of reading, they are perfect matchmakers for helping me find my next read!

Catherine Jenkins

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
