Talk:Scrapbook (book binding structure)

From Wiki

This discussion was moved over from the Scrapbooks discussion page:

A user raised the following point "One of the challenges of scrapbooks is the nomenclature so that we are all talking about the same thing. How are you defining a scrapbook? Is it just the use of any blank book as People who compile them have used all the stationery blank books available to them and so have not necessarily filled them with the stationers original intention. For example some ledgers end up being what we call photographic albums. Some photographic albums are filled with scraps. I would suggest that we go up a level and call them blank books and the intentionality of use should then be described; ledgers, albums, scrapbooks and then the actual use can be described." --Kkelly (talk) 13:56, 13 April 2015 (CDT)

Another user commented, "I agree that nomenclature should be clear. Binding structure can help with this: many photo albums and scrapbooks are guard-books. It is these that are intended for use as scrapbooks and/or albums, whereas ledgers are often pressed into use for holding receipts, inventories, and other items related to the business use of the ledger. I would describe the latter as a 'ledger-based scrapbook', and the former as a 'scrap album.'"--Kkelly (talk) 14:06, 13 April 2015 (CDT)

These seem to be excellent topics to be addressed in the AIC Lexicon Please send me suggestions for terms and definitions, and I will try to add them to the lexicon and link to them as possible.--Kkelly (talk) 13:56, 13 April 2015 (CDT)
