Pictures of my "drawers"

I noticed that my collection that is divided in different kinds of ordering (chronological, geographical, in genera and species) are pretty good, but one kind of order is missing: the chaotic one. Therefore I have taken photos of all of my "drawers". These have had an order in the beginning, but after some competing super ordering ideas no longer. At least they are good for rummaging. That is what I want to show on the following pages.

Unfortunately I dont have real drawers, as seen at other collectors, in nice warm comfortable wood, and much less I dont have a drawer cabinet. My collection is kept in stackable plastic boxes. Not that pretty, but very handy.*

So 79 photos have been created.

* I wish I could write like this. Not my translation. Danke Viola!
