Book Review: “The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt”

I recently had the opportunity to take a look at Caroline Preston's latest book, "The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt – a Novel in Pictures."  

This "scrapbook novel" is set up like a vintage scrapbook and is unlike anything I've ever seen before.  As a reader, you feel like you are reading through someone's private diary/scrapbook.  To help tell the story, the author has made each page into a scrapbook layout containing vintage ephemera (from her own personal collection) along with type written notes by the main character, a young 1920's New Hampshire woman.  

Take a look below to see a peek inside this wonderfully creative book!  You can also watch an interesting video of Caroline Preston talking about her process in making the book here and a sweet dramaticized video trailer here.
