If you’d like to see your collection featured here on Robot 6, here’s what you need to do:

1. Take some photos and save them as jpgs.
2. Write up a little something about your collection.
3. Send them to me in an email.

Some additional tips:

1. Although we don’t have a minimum or maximum limit on photos, usually 10-15 should suffice. They also don’t need to be huge, so if you can shrink them down so they are less than 1000 x 1000, that would be great. You can help make your collection look nice by being sure to focus, use the right lighting, dust your shelves beforehand, etc.
2. You can either write something up that’ll appear at the beginning of the post, or you can describe each item. Be sure to indicate where each image should be placed within your write-up, but don’t embed the images into a Word doc. Just put the file name in brackets where you want the image to appear.
3. When sending images using something like YouSendIt or DropBox, please keep in mind that I may not get to your submission for a month or more, so make sure you don’t delete them or that they won’t expire.
4. Please include your name (just your first name is fine) and location with your write-up.
5. There’s no need to send an inquiry about whether or not we want to feature your collection; that’ll just slow the process down. Send your full submission, and if I have any questions or issues I’ll get back to you. Right now we have a pretty deep backlog of submissions, so if you don’t see your collection right away, don’t despair — it’s coming!

Thanks for posting our little studio on Shelf Porn. The collection is definitely not as extensive as others but it does the trick for us. There’s another 10-11 long boxes tucked away in the basement but I haven’t found a cool way to present those yet. It’s tough to balance a functional office space, avoid too much clutter (dust collectors) and still showcase all the stuff we love.

nice collection love that one super man print. and also the gumball machine acting like a book end.

I love Douglas Coupland and Nick Hornby.

I know some people showcase massive collections, which can be impressive, but I’d much rather have a place like this that looks sleek and has a lot of good stuff, but not no clutter.

Yeah, that row of books really jumped out at me when I was putting this together … Douglas Coupland, Christopher Moore, Nick Hornby, Michael Chabon, Jonathan Lethem … those are all authors on my shelves as well.

World’s Finest #142…soooo jealous.

The World’s Finest comic is definitely more sentimental than valuable. My boys have a Composite Superman action figure (DC 1st Appearance) they’ve been playing with for years. Sometimes he’s Batman, sometimes Superman.

I picked up this issue because they enjoyed reading the mini-comic that came with the figure.

I read it as a kid – i think it was in a DC Digest. I know I can pick up a copy for 10-20$ but it is something I hope to stumble across some day. It is something to keep an eye on when at comic stores or yard sales.

Good stuff! This is my kind of collection too. Streamlined down to the best books you love, instead of everything you could ever buy.

I love the work area too. Where are your desk(s) from?

Thanks everyone for the kind words about our space.

The books (Hornby, Coupland, etc) were the only books to survive the cull last year. I’m trying to keep only the books I will likely read again. I’m learning to ‘let go’ in my old age.

iola, the desks are from Ikea. They have lots of different configurations (left and right curves) for this style so it worked great for us.

LOVE the Tony Harris’ ‘Starman’ #28 cover you’ve got! I’m a huge fan of Robinson’s run Starman and it looks like you are too!

Where did you get the desk at? I am looking for something like that to function as my work study. LOVE the spinner rack. Any comic enthusiast/collector should have one in their collection somewhere.

Jeremy M., the desk(s) are from Ikea. It is two of the Galant model desks with opposite corners. I did a bit of cutting of an extension piece to make the two come together as seamlessly as possible.
