I brought this book home for the holidays and literally every person could not put it down. There is something special about this book that makes everyone want to look through it. I loved seeing everyone's reaction as they flipped through the pages and reminisced about their own childhood. Now we all want to recreate some of our own photos!

When I first saw this site online about a year or so ago, I loved it immediately. I really enjoyed going through all the pictures and knew I had do to one myself. I made one, submitted it to the site and was very flattered when they wrote to me to ask if they could use my pictures in the upcoming "Young Me, Now Me" book.

They sent me a copy in the mail today, and I absolutely LOVED flipping through it. The pictures they chose to use are great, as are the stories those featured wrote to go along with them. This is a book that I'm sure I'll enjoy going through time and time again, and I can't recommend it highly enough...

...and not just because I'm in it, either. ;)

Ze Frank has one of the most creative minds on the planet (who else could get hundreds of people to dress up their vacuum cleaners?) "Young Me, Now Me" is a great book of paired photographs one from childhood, and another recreated in adulthood. They tend to be extremely funny, but also very revealing of the human condition. The stories behind each pair is told by one of the subjects, and the emotions spanned are huge; I was surprised how often I was genuinely touched by the sentiments revealed here (especially with the Canady girls on pp. 94-95 and the beautiful photo pair on pp. 18-19 of Bill McKenney's Mom, now suffering from Alzheimer's.) Of course most of the photos are lighthearted reenactments of cherished childhood memories and are considerably upbeat, but the book is much more than a simple photo collection.

The book doesn’t take long to read, but if you're like me you'll leave it sitting around so you can flip open to pages at random; you'll never fail to smile. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the greatest, and with "Young Me, Now Me" Ze Frank hit it out of the park.

This is the greatest little book. It's by turns hilarious, poignant, provocative, and amazing. Good to see one of Ze Frank's projects get put into book form -- it's like a slow motion flashmob. It's not so much a book of photos as a document of a performance art happening. Kudos to all involved!

Format: Paperback
This is one of those books that makes you say, "oh, that's a cute idea" and you don't totally realize that you will then spend the next hour glued to each page thinking of which pictures from your own past you will have to recreate. This would make a great present paired with a "young me, now me" set of your own.

It's a book to lift your spirits during the holiday madness or at any other time of the year. With all the turmoil in the world, who couldn't use a reason to smile? Ze has giving us another brilliant and poignant happy face.

Format: Paperback
The book is awesome. The juxtaposition of Young Me and Now Me has a strange effect since neither of the two versions, taken on its own, will allow us to predict the other because the possible bifurcations are endless, yet when we see the two actualizations together, we endorse the combination without hesitation as the only one that would make sense.

In fact, I took the YM picture of the author a number of years ago, and have waited all this time for such a book to come out. Congrats, Ze, I love you!

This book will make you nostalgic, and maybe make some of your own Young Me, Now Me photos. Very unique book. I gave it to my sister and she loved it.
