Overview

The face of scrapbooking is about to get a youthful, cutting-edge makeover! Despite the craft’s popularity, all the books flooding the market focus on the same images of weddings, baby showers, and Little League. So where’s a scrapbooking rebel to go? To Scrap City of course. With its edgy and artistic points of reference, it fills the gap to reach those urban hipsters, downtown secretaries, big city divas, and small-town nonconformists. Along with a basics section and scrapping tips, is the pièce de résistance: a gallery of real-life scrapbook pages from people of all stripes, from the single mom to the skate kid. These contributors celebrate their panty collection; reveal why single is fun; list their tattoos; and, yes—even redefine the baby shower.

Paul Gambino has taught screenwriting at the School of Visual Arts, was a production consultant and writer for NBC, and was Creative Director for the magazines Gener8 and Ultra. He has spent endless nights in NYC’s hottest clubs; years as a punk on London’s King’s Road; and college days with Keith Haring and Jean Michael Basquiat. Now a father, he has a special appreciation for time’s fleeting nature and how important it is to preserve memories for yourself and others.

    It's about time!

    Finally a book on scrapbooking that's not all about birthdays, little league games and trips to Disney World... not that there's anything wrong with that, but it was inspiring to see layouts on 'real life'! I espcially love the layouts on tattoos, burlesk and being a punk rocker. Plus you got to see the artist -- some are definitely NOT your average scrapbooker. Pick this baby up. You will not be disappointed.
