Subscriber since: our most loyal readers share their Wallpaper* collections

All our long-term subscribers are dear to us. In their company we have changed and grown; with their support we prospered. Some have been with us since that stumbling, sticky foal of a first issue, seen our thoroughbred promise and stuck along for the remarkable ride. People are keen to tell us that they have that first issue and what a prize it is. Or that they have every issue, carefully stacked and stowed. Which got us thinking. Here are the creative spaces of just a few of our notable loyalists – including John Pawson, Jonathan Anderson and Patricia Uriquiola – their Wallpaper* collections close to hand, an ever-present inspiration. So how do you keep yours? Stacked or shelved in date order? Proudly displayed or in a nukeproof vault? Share a picture of your Wallpaper* collection (or your most prized issue) using #SubscriberSince and tagging @wallpapermag on Twitter and Instagram
