rhino's kitty

This book was in a box of old things of my grandmother's. It holds a hundred or so pages of measurements for people, local people and family members that my granny would have knitted/sewn clothes for. the name has nothing to do with it, the book was originally used to keep kitty records for a band of my uncle's. But i like the idea of this bit of personal history, a snippet of these tiny seemingly trivial interactions of this person with hundreds of people. time has a way of adding weight to the most unassuming material. plus i'm always fascinated by fastidiously economical record-keeping, squeezing so much info into little pages (the book's about the size of a postcard).

and for my own brand of record-keeping;
