Corkscrew Museums and Exhibitions

When someone starts collecting anything, information on the hobby is elusive and very hard to find.  Typically, books are unknown, or if they see one, it is usually out of print as the print runs are small, perhaps a thousand or two.  There are other publications by collectors that stay within their small group, perhaps a hundred published in all.  Monographs, articles, references (catalogues, advertisements, old pictures) and art forms are the sources of vital information but these are elusive indeed.

These pages provide you with as much of this material as we could obtain and get permission to publish.  For others there are the references and you may be able to obtain a copy if the author is willing or can be found.

To get to the sections where these representations are found, just click on the bold letters below.
