Aluminium liquior bottles Used tea bags, peach-pit monkeys, vintage folding travel hangers, candy-colored knitting needles. Oh, and blown-glass food domes, paper clips and sailor’s valentines, Bakelite, vintage Pyrex and matte black Wedgwood basalt teapots. These are just a few of the delectable multiples collected in “Collected: Living With the Things You Love,” by Fritz Karch and Rebecca Robertson, out last November from Abrams ($40). Mr. Karch and Ms. Robertson, former editors at Martha Stewart Living, have formulated a taxonomy of the collector’s mind and extrapolated 15 types, from the Modest-ist (bottlecaps, twine and so forth) to the Containerist (aluminum suitcases, vintage tea canisters), the Zoologist (pom-pom creatures made by Steif, majolica crustaceans) to the Fabulist (swizzle sticks, vintage Lily Pulitzer blazers).
