Turning from hobbyist to purveyor, he apparently didn't neglect his personal collection:
"In 1988, construction began on a spacious Tudor house with a tower library in Connecticut. 'Actually, it's a little house with a big library attached to it,' he said. 'The library took me ten years to finish. I kept running out of money. To this day, when I walk into that room I say, 'Holy shit. I live here.'"
The Ape will now spend the next 3-6 weeks fantasizing about a 'tower library.'
