"C o l l e c t i n g i s a tradition, but an eccentric one, and it is carried out most capably by freethinkers who prize self-expression, the pursuit of an individual sensibility, and the discovery — often through old things — of the new." — Michael Diaz-Griffith "The New Antiquarians do the new as well as the antique. Some mix or display objects in new- fashioned ways, while others reclaim or recontextualize history through the things they have chosen to steward and interpret. A few, brilliantly, do all these things at once." — Michael Diaz-Griffith The New Antiquarians: Michael Diaz-Griffith A rt historian Michael Diaz- Griffith is the perfect gent to introduce a new generation to the world of antiques collecting. In The New Antiquarians: At Home with Young Collectors (Monacelli), Diaz-Griffith explores 17 homes that burst with objects and curios, as well as the up-and-coming young collectors who inhabit them. Whether it's a Manhattan loft with 19th-century quilts and beadwork, a Baton Rouge home boasting an important private collection of Creole art, or a seaside house in England with 18th-century sugar casters alongside chartreuse and arsenic- green decor, every residence featured in these pages exemplifies new ways to live with history.
