A big collection of fragile signs is my record dream

David Meldrum

Regarding your Voxpop on which world record I’d like to hold (DW 19 May), not being sporty or desiring the longest fingernails or nasal hair in the world, I would like to break a record that links with an interest that I could appreciate on a daily basis. As an avid collector of advertising signage I would like to have the world’s biggest collection of glass advertising signs from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. I love the fragility, the fact that they have survived for so long and the story they tell through colours, design and typography.
