Daily Dose Pick: A Collection a Day


Artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon’s A Collection a Day is a year-long online art project that turns obsessions into things of beauty.

Congdon loves things: specifically, collecting, arranging, and displaying things. From antiques to rare books, and from spoons and canceled stamps to light bulbs, bird houses, bingo cards, and animal figurines, Congdon’s meticulous 365-day daily display depicts her myriad collections with affection and reverence. Via photos, drawings, and paintings, she presents all manner of random objects, including the imaginary.

Browse the growing number of daily collections, follow the artist on Twitter, and view the rest of her fine-art work on her official website.
