The book is called The Land of Lost Content and The Story of Great British Rubbish. It's a celebration of a lesser-known museum in Shropshire. The museum is a vast collection of ephemera, all collected and chronicled by one woman, Stella Mitchell. She has spent her life collecting Britain’s “rubbish” as a record of our society and behaviour. I first discovered Stella’s amazing museum almost five years ago and the idea for the book stayed with me for some time until I realised I had to make it happen. So I sat down with Stella and talked for hours about the collection, her views on studying rubbish as a means of anthropology. It’s probably the designer in me, but it seemed vital that someone distill the sprawling, enormous collection into something digestible. I wanted to find a way to allow viewers to focus on the small details in each piece. Little did I know that Stella had a story for why each item made it into her museum. She could talk for hours about the collection, the below stories are just a small taste from her stories of Great British Rubbish.
