Displaying my camera collection

I display my collection of cameras in a glass cabinet, laid out roughly by type. Some time ago I added small signs with the camera’s make, model and date. Originally these were on small tent-fold cards, printed on the computer.

After a while, this annoyed me because the cards were too easy to disturb when reaching in to take out a camera. I decided to attach them to the edge of the shelves with BluTack.

This annoyed me too, because it’s a pain to relocate all the labels every time I buy a new camera. So decided to try something a bit different.

I found a strip of pine with a sloped face, cut it into segments, varnished them and labelled them with a labelmaker. The typeface is not as nice, but the effect is smart. The signs are easy to move but hard to knock over.

Finally, here is how the whole cabinet looks with the new wooden labels. For more details on the collection, have a look at my Cameras page.
