Paired with a signature and a stamp bearing the date of issue, the images are an incredible illustration of history right before our eyes. The series includes people like Albert Einstein, Ella Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Janis Joplin, Marilyn Monroe, The Kennedy’s, and Nelson Mandela. Beyond seeing the original owners, it’s also interesting to directly compare the booklets in terms of the different designs, paper color, and photo placement. Isn’t it funny that such a universally required booklet can be so different throughout the world and across decades.
