The purpose of this book is to provides a snapshot of what people value from childhood, and how the objects and experiences they cherish influence identity and how people think about the world. This anthology consists of a series of self-written and collected anecdotes from family and friends, arranged thematically and accompanied by self-generated watercolour illustrations. The custom typography etched into the jacket as well as delicate, monochromatic curled elements used throughout the book incorporate spirals and the infinity symbol to reflect the passage of time, memories and self-reflection. To emphasize the tactility of the imagery and the concept of crafting one’s own “yesterday,” blank watercolour paper was used to create the book jacket.
