Project Description

100 Years of Yiayia Afrou Memory Book

Stories were collect and photographs were restored to their former glory and presented in this 200 page book, based on the life of Aphrodite Solomon. The book included a 3-page fold-out of her family tree, including photographs of all her Children, Grandchildren and even her Great Great Grandchildren. A key is used to explain all the symbols throughout the book, which are used to represent specific family members and events.

The book has been ‘dressed’ the way Aphrodite would have dressed. The outside black cloth cover represents the black clothes that she wore after her husband passed away, the silver foiling is her silver/white hair, and the inside lining of the book is of a pattern that she wore before her husband died.
