Scrapbook (book binding structure)
A book used to store a variety of memorabilia, such as clippings, pictures, and photographs. Generally produced as a blank book and then filled in by the user, though printed and manuscript volumes have been reused as scrapbooks. A scrapbook is distinguished from a photographic album (photo album) by the variety of materials it contains, though there is significant overlap between the two in terms of structure and function.
