What we call Scrapbooks or Memory Books today, originated as far back as 1598 as Common-place Books, which were home made books in which educated people collected quotes, poetry, letters, cards and illustrations. A printing technique known as lithography was invented in 1798 and during the 1800s young women kept friendship albums filled with hair weavings, writings, autographs, scrap, cards, poetry and even early photographs. Homemakers kept the labels and trade cards from new consumer products and college students documented their years at school. Cartes de visite and card photographs became popular in the United States about 1859 and made their way into collectors' albums. . The mass production of advertising cards for companies and products began in the 1860s. In 1872 Mark Twain marketed a self-pasting scrapbook. It had gummed pages that you moistened to adhere your various scraps. At least fifty-seven different types of Mark Twain albums were available by 1901. Scrap booking became even more popular in the 1880s especially among women and children. In 1888 George Eastman sold the Kodak camera for amateur photographers under the slogan, 'You push the button, we do the rest.' Photographs then became a major part of scrap books and albums. The book 'Roots' by Alex Haley (1970) spurred a resurgence of interest in family history. Scrap booking really emerged as a popular hobby in the 1990s, giving rise to special products, magazines, books and specialty retail outlets. By 2000, scrap booking software was developed that allowed page layouts and albums to be created on home computers and shared with friends and family via the internet.
