Cooper-Hewitt: Scrapbooks and Self Works- Jessica Helfand and Rebecca Johnson Melvin


Combining pictures, words and a wealth of personal ephemera, scrapbook makers preserve on the pages of their books a moment, a day, or a lifetime. Join Jessica Helfand, graphic designer, co-editor of Design Observer, and author of Scrapbooks: An American History, and Rebecca Johnson Melvin, manuscripts librarian and curator of Self Works: Diaries, Scrapbooks, and Other Autobiographical Efforts, for a presentation and conversation about this lively art and its history.
