The Artisan Collector guides are intended to help newcomers to the hobby learn the fundamentals of artisan keycaps, how they are made, collecting tips, and other best practices. Unlike articles, the guides are reference material, with new ones being added and existing ones being updated periodically, as the hobby evolves. The roadmap below provides a recommended reading sequence, establishing a prerequisite understanding of concepts and terms assumed in later guides. We hope you find this information useful on your artisan collecting journey!
In addition to the planned guides noted in the roadmap above, we have a long-term goal of publishing additional guides covering various other collecting topics, including photography, storage, restoration, running commissions, interacting with the community (online and meetups), thematic collecting, and more. If you feel there is a topic that needs extra attention, or important additions or edits needed in existing guides, we would love to hear from you. You can contact the editor via the methods described on the About Us page. We appreciate any help to make these guides a useful resource for the community.
