The Man With the Most Magazines in the World

Jun 17, 2015 | 474 videos
Video by Angus Dunsire

James Hyman's fixation with accruing magazines began when he was a comic-obsessed child. Today, he owns the largest collection of magazines in the world (68,000 unique magazines) and is searching for a way to digitize his extensive archive. The filmmaker Angus Dunsire profiles this singularly huge magazine collection and introduces a few of the characters behind the efforts to preserve it. "There's so much inside a magazine which can never be echoed by the videos or by the web," says Danny Posner, founder of the Vintage Magazine Company. "Which ultimately is quite repulsive to me anyway."

 

Additional credits: directed and edited by Angus Dunsire, cinematography by Luke Scully, color by Joe Mannion, produced by PAL films.
