VHS. Home video cassette. At one point, nearly the whole world bought and rented tapes. The video store was king. Then, almost overnight, it crumbled. However, you can still find folks buying and collecting old tapes. Is it an obsession? Why do they lust after such an obscure and antiquated format? What was it about the video store and VHS that changed the way we consume entertainment altogether?This book serves as a deep dive into the world of videotape collecting. From the dawn of the video store to the tape hoarders that propagate its continued relevance, VHS collecting is much more meaningful than merely stowing away tapes in a basement!
