One of my all time favorite books is The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston. If you are a lover of the 1920's you need to check out this book! The pictures alone are total 1920's eye candy. I had never even heard of this book before until one of my blog followers, Stephanie Ruby Feldman of rubymusings.blogspot. turned me on to it. I went to the book store only to just take a peek at it and then I was going to check it out at the library but as soon as I laid eyes on it I had to have it!
Caroline Preston, the author has a huge collection of vintage ephemera and she wanted to find a creative idea to utilize it. She came up with the idea to tell the story of a fictional character (Frankie) in a book that is all laid out and written like a real scrapbook from the 1920's. The book starts off with Frankie having just graduated from high school and several years following. Many adventures and twist & turns are in store for the reader.
