Scrapbooks can be seductive.
Cecil Beaton started collecting postcards when he was three years old.
It eventually turned into “Cecil Beaton: The Art of the Scrapbook,” which costs slightly less than a decent stove, and supposedly weighs about the same, but it's worth it.
The photo spreads selected were distilled from approximately 40 scrapbooks and over 8,000 photographs from the great photographer’s archive.
His country house weekends weren't complete without a session of "cutting and pasting," comparing notes and reviewing the pages of a previous weekend's accomplishment.
Beginning in the 15th century, commonplace books, much like modern day yearbooks, were popular in England.
They were a way to compile information that included recipes, quotes, letters, poems and just about every scrap, scrappers could lay their hands on.
In 1775, James Granger published a history of England with several blank pages at the end of the book, now known as grangerizing, to allow the book's owner to personalize their copy with their own notes and scraps.
You've probably grangerized a few.
Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, in 1826, made scrapbooks even more memorable by producing the world's first photograph.
In the 1900s, George Eastman and the Kodak Brownie, a camera designed to be simple enough for a child, allowed the average person to begin to incorporate photographs into their scrapbooks.

Hugh Heffner is an avid scrapper.

Marielen Christensen of Spanish Fork, Utah is the person usually credited with turning this age-old hobby into a multi-billion dollar industry.
Maybe we can't do it like Cecil Beaton but we all remember and keep our memories close in different ways.
A wall of photos.
A refrigerator door filled with the past, the present and a little of the future.
A digital picture frame.
A photo album with little tabs that hold the corners of the pictures.
Or your own scrapbook, ever evolving, as personal as a fingerprint.
