1920s Scrapbook: Caroline Preston


While searching for my next good read on NPR, I came upon this gem:

The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston is a “a kaleidoscopic array of vintage postcards, letters, magazine ads, ticket stubs, catalogue pages, fabric swatches, candy wrappers, fashion spreads, menus and more” (Source).  Each page is a scrapbook-style design masterpiece depicting the life of Frankie Pratt in the 1920s.  What a creative, beautiful idea!
