The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt : a novel in pictures, by Caroline Preston.

In 1920’s New Hampshire, Frankie Pratt begins a scrapbook that will follow her after her high school graduation, through college, to Paris, and back.  Its every page is delightfully illustrated with vintage images (the author thanks 300+ eBay sellers for her materials) of ticket stubs, Sears catalog items, pressed flowers and the like, that tell the story as much as, if not more than, the words do.
