Love Letter to a Daily Life in Hamburg or…New Prima

A Couple months ago I found this old typewriter book at an antique store in NJ and I fell in Love with it and knew I would alter it some day.


I love the unusual format and I had fun using pictures with this beautiful new line by Prima for CHA. the pictures are all about the normal every day life in my City Hamburg. There is lot’s of pockets – hidden and obvious :

    I really love this project with the old typing book! Funny thing, I had that book when I was in high school learning typing. It brings back memories!
