Collecting Memo Books

Aaron Draplin arranges his memo books according to whatever suits his fancy, size, color, or just in stacks of roughly the same height.

Aaron Draplin has a large collection of memo books—mostly mid-century advertising material for seeds, fencing, fertilizers, and other farming related products. In a video posted at Field Notes he talks about his interest in and motivation for collecting memo books and about the arbitrariness of collecting and organizing anything. The video is at The Memo Book Archive as are scans of 300 or so of his memo books.
