IOLA, Wis. — The antiques group of F+W Media and Krause Publications has released the newest edition of one of the most trusted names in the antiques and collectibles field: Warman’s Antiques & Collectibles 2014. Edited by 15-year industry veteran Noah Fleisher, former editor of Antique Trader, New England Antiques Journal and Northeast Antiques Journal, and current Public Relations Director at Heritage Auction Galleries, the 47th edition makes sense of the inexhaustibly diverse domain of antiques and collectibles.
When asked what sets this newest edition apart from the rest, Fleisher says, “A larger, more informative introduction offers perspective from key market watchers. New collectors entering the collecting world are constantly affecting demand and prices so it’s important to take a step back and examine just how much this hobby and business has changed during the last decade and the new areas collectors may pursue.”
Geared toward providing a keen eye, discriminating taste and an authoritative voice, “Warman’s Antiques & Collectibles 2014” offers a dazzling display of 2,500 color images in concert with insight, advice and valuations from leading experts from across the country.
“We strive to make Warman’s not only the most informative annual guide on the market but also the most enjoyable to read,” said Paul Kennedy, Editorial Director of Antiques & Collectibles Books, Krause Publications. “Much like the hobby itself, sitting down with our guide should be a pleasurable experience, instructive and entertaining. With that in mind, we are thrilled to have someone of Noah Fleisher’s stature and ability guiding our efforts. Noah not only brings to the table an impressive understanding of the field but also a great deal of joy and appreciation for this grand adventure.”
Whether you fancy the tradition or the latest trend, you will find it in “Warman’s Antiques & Collectibles 2014.” This newest edition includes everything from ceramics and glass, furniture and jewelry, to toys and illustration art; new additions include Historical Americana, Wildlife Art, Science & Technology, Wine and Comics Art, among others.
Fleisher says, “This edition presents a number of areas that are up and coming as well as the finest examples of art and antiques.” He continues, “I also wanted to show that although the top of the market keeps bringing top prices, middle range items are showing strong improvement. There’s several years of pent-up demand for antiques and collectibles and as the economy improves I expect we’ll see both segments grow.”
