The Scrapbook As an Autobiographical Memory Tool

This study explores how consumers collect, preserve, and reconstruct autobiographical memories through the material possession of the scrapbook. Interviews were conducted with twenty women who scrapbook as a hobby. The Possession Memory Framework was constructed to describe three activities: collection of memory, preservation of memory, and reconstruction of memory.
