For years now, I’ve been intrigued by people who collect things. A few summers ago, I wrote a series for Toronto Life in which I spotlighted weird and wonderful collections around the city, from vintage knives to love letters to hats, sneakers and taxidermy. Today, I came across the paper airplane collection of beat artist, Harry Smith. Found on New York’s streets between 1961 and 1983, his collection is pretty special. Take a look at these humble, and yet beautiful works of art.
