Perhaps the Most Disturbing Object in My Collection...
This Victorian trade card just might be the most bizarre/disturbing/creepy item in my entire collection. It certainly wasn't the most expensive item, but it's WAY up on the creepy hierarchy. I won't write any commentary, because this truly speaks for itself. As a Trevor Brown collector, I find this piece particularly intriguing.
FringePop is a showcase for uncommon and esoteric cultural artifacts. The focus is on unusual items from both popular and fringe culture, with an emphasis on subversive pieces. The items shown are from the author's personal collection, unless otherwise noted.
I am a pop culture buff and collector, who focuses on the odd, subversive, and fringe elements of Western culture. In 2005, I edited a book for Feral House called "Sin-A-Rama: Sleaze Sex Paperbacks of the Sixties." The vintage oddities in my collection include victoriana, sideshow, medical, and kitsch. I am also an amateur sewer, making clothing from vintage mod patterns.
