Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Pictify is a new web-based curation service which allows you to put together, publish and share, visual art collection of any kind.

 

This is a great tool for those in love with art, as much as for those who need to organize, present and promote artists' work.

 

At Pictify, most curated collections are built around paintings, sculptures, photography and drawings created by users who are passionate about a specific artist, genre or historical time. 

 

But Pictify offers a tremendous opportunity to museums and art gallery owners, managers and curators, as it offers them an easy way to showcase their existing collections as well as upcoming ones.

 

From the official site: "As a gallery or museum you can feature your artists and the works in your collection on Pictify. You can show individual art works, preview an upcoming exhibition, and organise works in albums by artist or medium."

 

P.S.: Just like Kullect.com, Pictify is a specialized content curation service catering to a specific type of content and user interested in art. Much less generic than Pinterest, and much more focused on a specific area.

 

Expect more special-interest curation sites to emerge soon in other fields.


The service is free to use.

Getting Started: http://pictify.com/about/getting-started/  ;

Identifying First Editions - The Fine Books Blog

Identifying First Editions - The Fine Books Blog | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The vast majority of noncollectors are under the impression that a first edition is identified by those two words on the copyright page. Sometimes this is indeed the case, often not. Pitfalls abound. Not only are there many methods of indicating edition, many of them cryptic, but publishers often switch from one method to another, apply them inconsistently or otherwise complicate matters to confound collectors.

Atomic Energy

 

Hi my name is Lindsay and I am the Girl behind Vintage Girl NY.
My Etsy shop is composed of vintage Clothing, accessories, shoes,
household & decor items. Everything I buy I absolutely love
and sometimes it becomes difficult to part with certain
things. lol I grew up in a family of collectors, so I learned from an early
age the value of vintage and grew to love it for not only the designs but the quality.
Im so inspired by the 1950s and you will find many mid century items in my shop which reflect my style and love of vintage.


My treasury "atomic energy" was inspired by my love of the 1950s and the atomic age. I love the 1950s colors.. pink & turquoise. The modern
styles & designs of the age are my favorites! Thank you so much for letting
me be a guest curator. This was soo much fun!

 

Check out the wonderful Etsy shop and Lindsay´s other social networks:
