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.

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 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.

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!

Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself either alone or with someone else as a child and then later in life another photo was taken in the same location when you were older? Did you notice the similarities in facial expressions or maybe even clothing if you were going to stage the photograph?

This book is filled with photographs of people . It shows the person as a child and then later in life. The author tried to make sure the details of the first photo were similar to the later photo. If you look closely you will see the similarities in the two photos.

You can change your hair, your body, your clothes and location, but you really cannot alter the facial changes .
It was really entertaining to see what the author had done with his subjects.

As you see the photos and read the individual stories, you will gain insight into the families at the time of the original photo. It may give you a chance to recreate some of your favorite family photos with siblings , parents, and other relatives.
