Four Years in One Book
This is my first scrapbook and chronicles four years of my life, between my first year at the University of Manchester and the year after my graduation – 2004.
It’s the physical manifestation of a prolonged period of mayhem and merriment that, were it not for the existence of this work, I probably wouldn’t remember very well! The book itself – which contains lots of Anne Geddes pictures and was given to me by one of my best friends from school (who you can see on one of the pages wearing a big sombrero-esque hat) – is unfortunately falling apart because it’s moved house so many times. It’s been very well loved, however, and my friend Leanne and I like to leaf through it on the odd occasion, reminiscing about what once was.
And luckily – although this did happen by accident, as much as I would like to claim I did it on purpose – the whirlwind that was my life during university and beyond is mirrored in the haphazard way the book is put together, which isn’t to say that it’s not still a work of art. Check it out!
