The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt: A Novel in Pictures

The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt: A Novel in Pictures - Caroline Preston I thumbed through this book at the bookstore, and was instantly charmed. Subtitled, 'a novel in pictures' , each page is a collage of vintage material - advertisements, illustrations, catalogue and magazine pages, telegrams, valetine's cards etc - and the type written text of the novel. The words and 'pictures' the story of Frances 'Frankie' Pratt, following her from her high school graduation in 1920 in a tiny town in Maine through her years at Vassar to Greenwich Village and Paris.I thought this book was really cute, and I loved all the vintage clippings. This must have been so much fun to write/make.
