Quirky and offbeat, with a little eccentricity, obsession and oddity thrown in for good measure, this is a delightful collection of museum reviews from a tour around the UK.
Based on the author's premise that his own collections might tempt him to open a museum of his own, he sets out to visit a few private collections dedicated to one focused item (and amazingly there appear to be a large number of such museums around the UK).
Entertaining and inspirational, filled with facts and irrelevant-yet-essential information, this is a highly enjoyable read and one which more than lives up to the obscure promise of the title.
