Andrew Novick is both a horologist and an omniphilist. He has a collection of collections. Is collecting collections louder than just collecting a single type of thing? You should hear his CD of his phone conversations with telephone solicitiors! Is a collector of noise a sonituphilist?
Andrew is also a nemophilist.
Would a collector of cakes be a crustumphilist?
Could a collector of trays be called a patellaphilist?
Would a collector of chaos be called a nusquamphilist? I used to think of myself as a psammologist because I enjoy counting bits of sand.
Lately I’ve also become something of a transportophilist.
