I've made no secret of my recently developed crush on Artifact Uprising. Their credo of preserving the 'disappearing beauty of the tangible' really does hit a soft and tender spot in this print-loving designer's heart.
Aidan designed two 5.5-inch books. One, a book of selifes; the other, a book of photos of the children she nannys for during the summer.
While that book has already been given as a gift to said children, Aidan let me share her selfie book here.
Selfie. It's just such a right now kind of word.
Back in my day, we didn't call them selfies, you know? I think we just called them self-portraits. I know, boring!
I like to think I was a bit ahead of my time with this little number from 1986.
Still, selfies are such a part of youth culture.
I was joking the other day and told Aidan I was going to launch a tumblr called "Middle Aged Selfies". I think there's an audience out there, don't you?
Do you have a teen with a ton of photos in need of a home? If so, consider making one of these little books.
Aidan has informed me she is going to make books all year long to document her senior year.
I say, "Go for it, girl." You won't regret making these books. Not one little bit.
