One for the Road: Trading in Memories
But after reading Barbara Hodgson's latest book, Trading in Memories, I'm inspired to shoot for beauty a bit more in future travel journals. Subtitled "Travels Through a Scavenger's Favorite Places", Hodgson celebrates her unique souvenir gathering method in this gorgeous tribute to ephemera, to "bits of detritus" and to the "beauty in erosion." From Syria to France, China to Canada, Hodgson shares details of her expeditions to curio shops, flea markets and graveyards. What she discovers, and how she captures, and eventually uses "found art" for her creative projects, is beautifully illustrated and explained in this travel book treasure.
