      • Caroline Preston Katel Le Fur

        As a girl growing up in Lake Forest, Illinois, Caroline Preston used to pore through her grandmother s and mother s scrapbooks and started collecting antique scrapbooks when she was in high school She attended Dartmouth College and received a master s in American Civilization from Brown University Inspired by her interest in manuscripts and ephemera, she worked as an archivist at the Peabody Essex Museum and Harvard s Houghton Library.Preston is the author of three previous novels Jackie by Josie, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, was drawn from her brief researching stint for a Jackie O biography Gatsby s Girl chronicles F Scott Fitzgerald s first girlfriend who was the model for Daisy Buchanan In The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt, she has drawn from her own collection of vintage ephemera to create a novel in the unique form of a 1920 s scrapbook.She lives with her husband, the writer Christopher Tilghman, in Charlottesville, Virginia and has three mostly grown up sons.


    1. My thoughts upon beginning this book: Why, oh why, didn't *I* write this book? It has everything I love; scrapbook/diary format, 1920s, ambitious young writer heroine, and oodles of beautiful vintage ephemera. Sigh.My thoughts upon completing this book: Still sighing/swooning over all the "full-color vintage memorabilia on every page" that the cover so giddily promises. Since one of my favorite relaxing pastimes is browsing vintage greeting cards and magazines on etsy (and buying a few of my ver [...]

    2. Book 5 of 52I was pleasantly shocked that something like this existed. And more than a little excited to see if the format would actually tell a fulfilling story. The vintage memorabilia was simply breathtaking, I loved all the little touches, and the style was completely accurate. It all felt very real. At one point a newspaper clipping mentioned "the little old lady in Dubuque Iowa" which I got very excited about, since many moons ago I was a proud Iowan. When I mentioned the clipping to my Da [...]

    3. Romantically Vintage . . . Artistically Tantalizing . . .Captivatingly Unique. The Scorebook of Frankie Pratt was such a surprisingly delightful novel. Sparse in verbiage but plentifully rich visually. A story uniquely expressed through photographs, illustrations, memorabilia, movie posters, advertisements, menus, ticket stubs, magazine clippings, etc It really defies categorization.In essence, though, it's a journey (a coming-of-age love story, of sorts) set during the Roaring Twenties, regalin [...]

    4. I never really understood the scrapbook craze of the early 2000s—you know, the factory-produced, mass-marketed “hobby” characterized by rubber stamps, paper stencils and tubes of glitter. My wife and I have been “scrapbooking” since we first started dating. If you go to our upstairs guest bedroom and pull down a large book with swollen pages, you'll find a pair of movie theater ticket stubs for Flashdance and a small bouquet of dried violets. It's the artifact from a particular night o [...]

    5. This was such a fun book. It wasn't full of literary complexity but I love books that pair art with writing. I thought all the pictures were excellent and the historical references were very interesting. I especially loved reading the old advertisements. It's just sweet. I would say for 15 and up because there's a bit about sex Ed class. I will definitely check out her other books!

    6. Original post at One More PageI'm one of those people who tries to scrapbook. I say try because as much as I try, I can't really make my scrapbook pages lookwell, as pretty and cute as the ones that other people do. That, or maybe I just don't have that artsy vibe (and the patience) to do them. But anyway, that never really stopped me from having fun with my planners, though: [Click to embiggen]Top row: 2006 planner - thesis defense+birthday week, Kalinga Luzon Bottom row, left: 2010, 25th birth [...]

    7. According to the publisher, this is the first ever published novel in scrapbook form. Before you groan and think about middle-aged white women obsessing about what scrapbooking trinkets are on sale this week at Hobby Lobby, this graphic novel is made entirely from images of assembled Victorian, Edwardian, and Jazz Age ephemera.This is a quick read, but interested parties can spend much longer looking at all of the historic items Preston arranged in order to tell the story of Frankie Pratt.My big [...]

    8. This book almost had enough vintage memorabilia to make my vintage-loving heart explode!The story was less than ideal, as there were no new nuances, not to mention a lot of name-dropping. (Frankie met Edna St. Vincent Millay, Sylvia Beach, AND James Joyce? I'm incredulous. And a little jealous. Except for the James Joyce part, as I consider him to be creepy.) But honestly, I didn't really mind too much; it was still interesting to read, and let's face it, I was under the enchanted spell of the a [...]

    9. With The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt, Caroline Preston has transcribed the imaginative journeys I take every time I set foot in an antique shop. I love exploring these little treasure troves of our past, creating my own stories about the lives of the former owners of gorgeous Flapperclothes, long thin cigarette holders, Depression glassware and kitschy wall decorations. I imagine the fun they had when they turned in the Worlds Fair or silent movie tickets whose stubs now remain, preserved under g [...]

    10. The Three Reasons Review is a simple way to get your thoughts out there about a book.  The reasons are as follows complete with fancy button:1.) Reasons you chose this bookI lost count as to how many great reviews I read of this title so I knew that I had to read it and soon! 2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this bookI loved this book! It was so fun to look at the ephemera from days gone by. I would love to actually hold a scrapbook from this time period in my hands today. What a treasure i [...]

    11. Oh what a fun treat this book is! It has page after page of brilliant photographs of just the sort of stuff girls will save in their scrapbooks. It's a sort of scrapbook/diary of a girl that begins in her high school days, takes her thru college and then off to her first magazine job. Of course, her romances are all there, complete with juicy details, no, nothing, vulgar. Eventually she ends up banging around 1920's Paris, has a tiny apartment above THE Shakespeare and Company, has yet another r [...]

    12. I still love the idea of a story being told through a scrapbook, and I loved the vintage graphics on every page. That was fun. However, I didn't find either Frankie or her story to be terribly engaging. It's just a very standard story of a small town girl going out into the world and, inevitably, coming back again. Cool concept, I just wish the story had been as cool.

    13. I was intrigued by this book when it came out in 2011 but didn't get around to buying it. Then years later I wanted to but couldn't remember the author or title. Luckily a friend put it on their to read shelf and it passed through my timeline. This time I purchased it right away. It's a quick "read" since you are mostly looking at pictures and memorabilia. There are blocks of type- written narrative to guide you through, but mostly you'll be turning the book every which way to read tickets, pro [...]

    14. J'avais quelques appréhensions en commençant ce livre (choisi par mon père pour Noël, qui a commenté le pack qu'il m'a offert par un "c'est des livres de fille"), donc je suppose qu'on ne peut pas vraiment parler de déception. Il était pourtant prometteur : le format en scrapbooking est très intéressant et très bien fait, honnêtement la meilleure partie de la lecture, et le scénario aurait pu être intéressant (une jeune fille qui veut être écrivain et part à l'aventure dans les [...]

    15. This book is absolutely breathtaking! It is composed of page after page of gorgeous pictures, advertisements and assorted other memorabilia that, along with the typed scraps of paper, tell the story of Frankie Pratt, an ambitious girl from New Hampshire who sets her sights on becoming a writer. We follow Frankie to Vassar College, a scholarship girl amongst over-privileged girls who are looking for a husband, not a career. She travels to New York, Paris and back to New Hampshire, all the time le [...]

    16. A very interesting concept: a novel told in the form of a scrapbook, complete with 1920s era memorabilia. Frankie Pratt is a young woman from small-town New England who wins a scholarship to Vassar then moves to New York and, later, Paris to follow her dream of becoming a writer and finding love. The book itself was beautiful, with pictures and various souvenirs from the 20s set against Frankie's typewritten commentary. The story, though, was a little lacking. It's understandable that there woul [...]

    17. This book is utterly brilliant, both in story and in concept. I shelved it as a "graphic novel," though that isn't exactly correct. The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt is really just that, a scrapbook. The premise is that Frankie receives a scrapbook as a gift, and fills it with stories and souvenirs of her experiences at home, school and beyond. This is so clever, and so beautifully executed that I'm thrilled I heard about it and was able to experience it for myself. Frankie is a vibrant, witty narr [...]

    18. Wow, I thought this book was AMAZING! I LOVED how the story was completely made up to go along with the vintage memorabilia. As a history nerd I loved looking at all of the old pictures and advertisements from the 1920s. I thought Frankie was such a fun character. I loved reading about her experience from when she graduated from high school all the way through all these ups and downs and finally she found her happy ending. Now I want to read more books by Caroline Preston!

    19. This was such a lark!!!I am a 'vintage' fan, even to the point of having owned a vintage clothing store for a while. This is a really fun era, with the liberating changes for women and the whole wild air about it! I have read books written in earlier periods, and we have all seen old movies, and current films as well the author captured the tone of the times - as presented in literature at least! (ah, the romance!)Her work with the ephemera is so much fun - caught myself wanting to go ahead with [...]

    20. This book was like no other I've read. Such a cute idea making the entire novel as a scrapbook.Quick and easy to read with the added quirkiness factor. Loved it!

    21. At first I titled my review "A Most Unique Story Told in Scrapbook Format", but then I decided I had it the wrong way around. The story itself isn't particularly unique - girl goes to college, makes friends, loses friends, falls in love, falls out of love, decides to have a "Career" (with a capital "C") in writing, tries to make her way in the world, returns home to care for an ailing parent, and finally finds true love. However, the way the story is told is very unique. Though the format of a e [...]

    22. Em's Review: When 18 year old Frankie Pratt graduates from high school, her mother gives her a blank scrapbook as a graduation gift. She wants to be a writer and the scrapbook will be her first story. Armed with her father’s old Corona portable typewriter, she tells her own story as she searches for love and success in the 1920s. Her story takes her from Cornish, New Hampshire to Vassar College to Greenwich Village to Paris via third class cabin on the Mauretania and back to New Hampshire agai [...]

    23. Frances "Frankie" Pratt is a high school girl who has big dreams of becoming a writer. Sadly, her father died when she was younger and her mother works as a night nurse to make ends meet. When Frankie takes a job as a "babysitter" for an elderly lady, little does she know how her destiny will change. From meeting the man of her teenage dreams to Vassar College to Paris and home again, Frankie records everything in her scrapbook diaries. I just adore the concept of this novel. Vintage ephemera is [...]

    24. I found out about this book at the vv32 blog during a 1920's virtual event. I was captivated by the idea of a story told entirely through a girl/woman's scrapbook. When my new copy arrived, I drooled over the lovely glossy pages that featured authentic graphic memorabilia from the early '20's period. I loved the variety of things that were stuck into Frankie's scrapbook that told her story as much as the little type-written notes tucked in there. Just in case your wonderings, a scrapbook is a vi [...]

    25. I was a little unsure of what to think of this book when it first was delivered to me at the library. Once I opened the novel and began reading, though, I instantly devoured it. I absolutely adore anything about the 1920s: Fitzgerald, the Flappers, the Expats…l of it. The allusions to the culture and especially the writers were divine. It felt like looking at a real scrapbook, but more importantly, it also told a story you actually were invested in. Will Frankie and Jaime meet again? Will Fran [...]

    26. This book is a book to be treasured! The story is wonderful and the way the story is told is fresh and new, at least to this reader. Caroline Preston tells us the story of Frankie Pratt through Frankie's scrapbook. At first I was afraid I would miss out on the story not being told in the traditional way one writes a story, through words. I was afraid I would get lost or miss out on something in the scrapbook. I need not worry. I caught on right away and before I knew it, I had read the whole boo [...]

    27. When I got this book out of the library.I glanced through it briefly and thought"Wait,it's just collages?" However, as a freelance artist I make collages myself and I really love clip-art from the 1920's;in fact I recognized quite a few of the images in it,having used them in my artwork. Anyway,I figured I just enjoy it for that but the story was funny and interesting as well. Young Frankie Pratt from New Hampshire wants to be a writer but doesn't want to be a scholarship student at stuffy Vassa [...]

    28. Not only is this a fascinating concept, the story to go along with the book is delightful. Frankie is such a spirited character! We follow Frankie as she graduates from high school in the very small New Hampshire town of Cornish through her college years at Vassar to her grand adventures in Paris and right back to Cornish where she finally finds just what she was looking for. We feel for her when she experiences the pangs of new love found and lost. It's probably this experience that got her her [...]

    29. Some books are simply beautiful to look at. Other books are beautifully written. "The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt" is the rare adult (older YA) novel that is both. Marketed as the first "scrapbook novel," Caroline Preston weaves vintage photos, news clippings, postcards, and other archival treasures into a seamless volume that backgrounds the story of Frankie Pratt. Part coming of age novel, part romance, part historical fiction, the narrative centers on Frankie's studies at Vassar and time as an [...]

    30. this is a pretty neat idea for a book. author caroline preston has spent years collecting vintage paper ephemera, like postcards, old magazines, patterns, bookmarks, telegrams, etc etc etc. she made a collaged novel out of her collection, documenting ten years in the life of one young woman as if the novel is in fact a diary. frankie pratt graduates from high school, hopes to attend college, suffers the death of her father, has to take a job, has a shameful affair with an older married man, atte [...]
