Default The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston

Quite a unique book. It's a novel done with clippings from newspapers and magazines, pictures of 1920's memorabilia, and all sorts of emphemera. There are only a few lines per page; so the effect is all in the visuals. Unlike the Griffin and Sabine books, there are no cut or pasted papers, just printed pages. These two YouTube videos can explain it better. The first is a dramatization with lines drawn from the book to create a synopsis:

The second is the author describing her process in the creating of the book (hundreds of clip art sources from the 1920's):
An interview with Caroline Preston, author of THE SCRAPBOOK OF FRANKIE PRATT - YouTube#!

I love old clip art and collect the digital images left and right, though I rarely seem to get around to using them in cards. I am constantly intrigued by the slice of history each conveys.

The details: HarperCollins, 2011, ISBN 978-0-06-196690-3, $23.99
