Using the auction

Collectors are often the greatest experts in their field.

Marco van Kampen worked for a while at a bookbinders, but soon found himself missing the actual contents of the books. So he applied to a major national bookshop where he worked for 12 years, becoming head of the antiquarian bookshop for the last five. In order to deepen his knowledge, he studied ‘History of the Handwritten and Printed Book’ at the University of Amsterdam. Over the years, Marco has put together a wonderful collection of erotica, books about books, and bibliographies.

This knowledge and reference material now stands him in good stead as a Catawiki auctioneer. It’s like Christmas every day when a good book or a special erotica object comes up for auction. He likes to present the very best to the bidders in the weekly Erotica auction, in collaboration with sellers as far as possible.
