A collection of stories and photos from life on the farm and celebrating my grandparents.
Part book design project, part biography.
Between 2007 and 2011, I secretly recorded interviews with my grandparent's over the phone and in person while going through their photo albums together. I "borrowed" stacks of their picture books and scanned in hundreds of photos to surprise them with a gift for their 65th wedding anniversary.
This book chronicals how they met, life on the farm, funny stories and important memories. Serves as a nice reminder of old friends and a window into the past for future generations.
