by VanGerven|VanRijnberk of a book about whimsical and weird objects; paper airplanes. Henry E. Smiths’s paper airplanes rank among his most mysterious and beautiful collecting pursuits ever. And we made a video book review about this sumptuous publication.
Harry Everett Smith, born in 1923, was a painter, filmmaker, and collector. He considered himself primarily an anthropologist. Smith was almost entirely self-taught. He approached his work as a painter, collector and researcher with avidity. He is best-known for his influential contribution “Anthology of American Folk Music,” a collection of recordings compiled from his vast personal collection of rare vinyl. Smith, who passed away in 1991, was a compulsive collector. The groups of objects he collected constantly morphed, due to long stays in hotels.
