"I want to democratize the idea of collecting so that it's not only for people who have a lot of money who collect ancient artifacts or shoes or expensive watches. You can collect ideas, artists, and favorite things…" - Julia Lu, The Collector
If you spend any time on Flipboard, you'll likely see The Collector 's Storyboards pass through your feeds. And if they don't catch your eye visually, they'll for sure pique your intellectual curiosity. With over 700 of these collections, curated around themes ranging from Banksy's political art to Greek myths you probably don't know, The Collector presents fascinating angles on ancient history, art, artists and philosophy.
I've always wondered who was behind TheCollector.com and in this interview I get to find out. Editor in Chief Julia Lu takes me behind the scenes on the site's editorial operations, where I learn how a collective of experts works together to curate information that has become a trusted resource for scholars, classrooms and enthusiasts.
