A Living Book: Documenting History through Unconventional Mediums

Project tags:

The initial concept of this project was to create the proposition for a web-based timeline of the Book Arts movement. In doing data collection, I realized that I had taken for granted Sandra as a storyteller, and it would benefit all students, particularly MLIS students, to have access to this indefinitely. Therefore, I have an additional timeline format to propose for the future; a living book, which would outlast all those involved in creating it. Based on my hometown’s “Hear, Here” system, it would preserve not only the content of Sandra’s knowledge but her way of sharing it through storytelling.
