From the Publisher
Editors Note The author examines the evolution of scrapbooks from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present, including their origins, their makers, their diverse forms, the reasons for their popularity, and their place in American cultural life.
Annotation Graphic designer and scholar Jessica Helfand provides a comprehensive and in-depth survey of two centuries of scrapbooks in America. Helfand explains the importance of the scrapbook form, how it developed over time, and the variety of scrapbooks kept by men and women both famous and not-so-well-known. Personal and individualized, scrapbooks became time capsules of common experience in which their owners placed a range of matter: photographs, letters, lists, tickets, newspaper clippings, receipts, telegrams, documents, song sheets, paystubs, maps, signs, and other objects. Helfand judiciously selects and comments engagingly upon a variety of scrapbooks, including those by Zelda Fitzgerald, an American soldier, and Marybelle Harn, a student at a music conservatory, whose scrapbook could be considered a work of art.
Editors Note 2 Examines the evolution of scrapbooks from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present, including their origins, their makers, their diverse forms, the reasons for their popularity, and their place in American cultural life.
