Title: Scrapbooks as Archives
Authors: Leja, Michael
Keywords: scrapbooks
photo archives
carte-de-visite
photography
Issue Date: 24-Feb-2011
Abstract: In personal scrapbooks from the middle of the 19th century, prints clipped from magazines and newspapers come to replace traditional drawings and autographic images. This development documents the rising mass production and circulation of pictures. Scrapbooks spanning a transitional period preceding the rise of carte-de-visite albums may provide an archive charting the permeation of daily life by mass-produced images.
