"What do you collect? "
 
   I was trawling Ebay as usual and I saw a pair of autographed Fonteyn pointe shoes for sale, which reminded me of a friend who has a penchant for collecting pointe shoes and costume items. It got me wondering about what the rest of you collect. I know most of us keep programs, but does anyone have a serious collection of photographs, video tapes and other ballet-related things? It would be lovely to hear about the more unique items in your collection.

   I love the beautiful black & white photos of past dancers -I can no longer see the wallpaper in my study for signed photos!

I have signatures of around 400 different artists (photos programmes & pointe shoes) and my favourite items are probably a letter to Sol Hurok from Pavlova, a squirrel drawing by Darcey Bussell (which is really good by the way!) and a programme signed by Igor Stravinsky amongst others.

   You can find paintings and drawings on a French website :
http://www.galerie-appassionata.com
There on the "autour de la danse" page you'll find settings and costumes of ballet.
