What is it that possesses us to collect things? To meticulously curate a store of anything from stamps to taxidermied cats?

In the words of Ed Gein, “Every man has to have a hobby”. Some bake sourdough bread, some go LARPing, and some collect items owned by the most sadistic and violent psychopaths in human...
