"Writing" a Scrapbook and Viewing Cultural History
If All Arkansas Read the Same Book

Cussy Mary and her fellow librarians breathed new life into damaged magazines, etc. by creating theme-based scrapbooks. Scrapbooks and scrap-albums have a long tradition; going back to the alba amicorum (friendship albums) of Renaissance scholars to 19th-century women's albums, to 20th-century photo albums, and beyond. From a 19th-century paper seller's advertisement: "Scrap-albums are not difficult to make; indeed, there are but four things we shall want from first to last: Patience and Taste, Scissors and Paste." Try creating your own scrapbook page with whatever you have at hand -- even your digital tools! And also, delve into the some of the rich cultural history of scrapbooks and scrap-albums from around the world.
