Overview

When graphic artist Ryan Maconochie became a father he searched for a baby book that melded his design aesthetic with the opportunity to chronicle his daughter’s first year. He couldn’t find anything—so he made one. This Is Your Book gives parents an opportunity to record more than just the vital statistics about their baby’s birth. It also offers an opportunity to reflect on the pop culture that surrounds the big day. From basic info such as baby’s height, birth hospital, and hair color, to amusing recollections of all the baby names that were ruled out, This Is Your Book utilizes current events, maps, and of-the-moment factoids to tell the story of the child’s first year and will become a fun stimulus for conversation and education with children in the years to come.

Praise for This is Your Book:

 —Babble.com

“Ryan Maconochie is building this time machine in paper form for his generation of parents.”

    A fun and intersting book. It's like a personalized history book

    A fun and intersting book. It's like a personalized history book for your baby, something that he or she will want to read for years to come or bring to show and tell. My baby is due in May and my husband and I are so looking forward to filling out the book.

    I love this book!

    This book is awesome. Even daddy loves filling in the pages. I love the page where we can note some of the 'other' names that we considered naming our child. A fund book.
